A thought-provoking play about siblings trying to make ends meet by starting an after-hours club, set against the turmoil of the 1967 Detroit Riots.
In Detroit ’67, Motown is the soul of Detroit’s party scene, where a brother and sister have turned their basement into an after-hours joint. The two argue over their different ideas about what to do with their inheritance. A mysterious woman worms her way into their lives and brings the fate of the family business to the brink, as the city around them descends into chaos with the outbreak of the Detroit riot. Directed by Ray Hatch and written by Dominique Morrisseau, the show features MET Company Member Rona Mensah as Chelle and welcomes a cast making their MET Mainstage debut: Evan Carrington as Lank, Charli Simone as Caroline, Anya Randall Nedel as Bunny, and Mark Wallace as Sylvester.
