Some description

Faye has spent her career at one of Detroit’s last auto-stamping plants. Shanita is pregnant, Dez has a whole future to plan, and their manager Reggie must navigate his debt to his work family and need to support his family at home. As rumors of a plant shutdown spread, these tight-knit workers must decide what they will sacrifice to survive. A timely and searing portrait of the African-American working class from Detroit native Morisseau.

Studio welcomes Dominique Morisseau, one of the most significant and talented voices in the theatre, to DC for the first time. Starring DC native Caroline Clay, Skeleton Crew is an important work by an important writer that excavates the lives of working class people in America today.


The output of playwright Dominique Morisseau has finally found a Washington home... it’s high time it occurred.
