Our friend Rachel Christopher (Frogs, The Faire, At The Table) is currently tearing it up in North Carolina in Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit ’67 at the PlayMakers Repertory Company (whose new Artistic Director is our own Board Member Vivienne Benesch)! The reviews are starting to come in for this regional premier and the press is excited to say the least. The Star Tribune described it as “[a] poetic play of fire-fueled dreams” and the Huffington Post called it “mind blowing!” If you’re in the Chapel Hill area, definitely check it out!

A LITTLE ABOUT THE PLAY
1967. The world is shifting for two siblings running an after-hours joint to make ends meet. Tensions mount when dreams diverge, their tight-knit community is threatened by an outsider and the streets erupt in violence in this riveting new play set to a driving Motown beat.
