Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History says
Theatre and Dance at Wayne is pleased to present staged readings of The Detroit Projects by Dominique Morisseau. This trilogy is a three play cycle that recounts the telling of the black experience at three pivotal moments in Detroit’s history. As a free community event, the staged readings will take place on three consecutive days at the Charles H. Wright Museum in the General Motors Theater, October 13th – 15th. This event is FREE and open to the public.

Detroit ‘67 takes place during the explosion of the lively city of Motown, as well as the height of the civil rights movement in the late 60’s. By drawing upon the thriving music and entertainment environment, Chelle and Lank, decide to turn their basement into a hot after-hours joint. As interpersonal tensions rise in their family, so do racial tensions throughout the city. In 2014, Detroit ‘67 won the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama, which is one of the most prominent prizes given for playwriting. The staged reading for Detroit ‘67 will take place on Wednesday, October 14th at 7:00pm.
