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

Paradise Blue sets the scene in 1949 in Detroit’s Paradise Valley, now Lafayette Park. Blue, an exceptional trumpeter, contemplates selling his once-vibrant club to rid himself of inner and outer conflicts from his past. The play received its world premiere this past summer at Williamstown Theatre Festival and is a recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play award. The staged reading for Paradise Blue will take place on Tuesday, October 13th at 7:00pm.

Free and open to the public.
