Be sure and put the Ensemble’s next production on your calendar! ENSEMBLE THEATRE’S Main Stage production of Detroit ’67 by Dominique Morisseau directed by Eileen J. Morris
It’s 1967 and almost every single Motown release has made the charts, yet the world is changing around Chelle and Lank, who run an after-hours club in the basement of their late parents’ house. Tensions mount when the siblings discover that their dreams have diverged while their tight-knit community is threatened by the arrival of a mysterious outsider, as the city around them erupts in violence. This powerful play unfolds at an explosive moment in our history, surrounded by the race riots that ravaged the city of Detroit in 1967, and set to a vibrant soundtrack of Motown hits of the day.
