Lisa D'Amour's "Detroit" at the Hilberry

Friday, February 1, 2013

Playwright Lisa D’Amour stops by the studio to talk about her new play, "Detroit." Detroit tells the story of two Detroit residents, Mary and Ben, who welcome the arrival of their new neighbors, Sharon and Kenny, who have just moved into the vacant house next door. Set in the first ring of residential homes on the outskirts of downtown Detroit, the play details the relationship that forms between the two couples as they begin to learn more about each other.

Director of Production Lavinia Hart says, "The play is a Detroit story – we’re a city bereft of revenue, neighborhoods, and opportunity. But Detroiters are survivors and their sense of humor is gritty and wry."
