About the play:
Winner of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History
Dominique Morisseau takes the audience on a journey to 1967, in the city of Detroit. Motown
music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by
turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way
into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up
feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 riots.
