Additional Info

From Chicago’s Steppenwolf theatre comes a new x-ray of the embattled American psyche. In a “first ring” suburb outside a mid-sized American city, Ben and Mary fire up the grill to welcome the new neighbors who’ve moved into the long-empty house next door. The fledgling friendship soon veers out of control, shattering the fragile hold Ben and Mary have on their way of life. Winner of the 2013 Obie Award for Best New American Play and a finalist for the 2012 Pulitizer Prize, DETROIT is a fresh, off-beat look at what happens when we dare to open ourselves up to something new.

“Disturbing and bracingly funny… a smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric, Ms. D’Amour’s dark comedy is as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.”(New York Times)

Directed by Wilbury Group Artistic Director Josh Short and featuring Providence theatre favorites Dave Rabinow, Melissa Penick, Mike Locicero, and Alexandra Lawrence. Tickets & more info at
