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.

Skeleton Crew, slated for a 2016 production at the Atlantic Theater Company, depicts four auto workers facing an uncertain future as the city edges toward the 2008 recession. Tells the story of a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city who learn that they will shut down by the end of the year. The plant's most veteran worker, Faye Davison, will be hardest hit, as she navigates her foreclosed home, dangerous habits and a stubborn will that prevents her from seeking the help she requires. As the rest of the crew face inevitability with varying degrees of distress, the lines between blue collar and white collar get blurred until someone steps so far over the line the act becomes irreversible.
