Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau
In the depths of the 2008 Great Recession, rumors of shutdown start to spread at one of Detroit's last auto-stamping plants forcing a tight-knit family of workers to face a devistating question: what will you sacrifice to survive? In the spirit of August Wilson's Pittsburg Cycle, award-winning playwright Dominique Morrisseau's bold and compassionate new play lays bare the trials of the human spirit with verve, wit and an electrifying voice of uncommon poetry.

M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang
When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when it all comes tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star: the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but in relity, a man with a secret mission. Rich with deeper themes, M. Butterfly confronts the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it. M. Butterfly's preview performance is on 1/23/2019
