    Detroit '67, a Drama by Dominique Morisseau

    It’s the summer of 1967, and the irresistible music of Motown is breaking records and breaking down barriers. Siblings Chelle and Lank make ends meet by running an unofficial nightclub in their Detroit basement, a risky business as police crack-down on after-hours joints in black neighborhoods. When Lank offers shelter to an injured white woman, tensions escalate both in their home and in their community—and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ‘67 Detroit riots. Dominique Morisseau’s deeply-felt drama explores an explosive moment in a great American city.

    It is July 1967 in Detroit, Michigan. Chelle and Lank’s house is located at the intersection of 12th Street and Clairmount Avenue. Though the characters and the house are fictional, 12th and Clairmount was at the epicenter of the actual riot that occurred in 1967. It is there, amid the ruin and carnage around them that this story of love, struggle, pain and sorrow unfolds.

    The New McCree Theatre’s production features Henry Bates, Jr., Pat Scott-Hill, Charles Terry, Cassandria Harris, Alverine Simpson, Darius Smith, and Janet McClanahan.  It is directed by Dennis Sykes.
