FSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance Presents “Detroit ’67”
The Department of Theatre and Dance at Frostburg State University will kick of its 2018-19 season with Dominique Morisseau’s play, “Detroit ’67,” on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12 and 13, and Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 18 to 20, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Oct. 13 at 2 p.m. Directed by FSU’s Nicole Mattis, the performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of the Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.
“Detroit ’67” begins in July of that year, when siblings Chelle and Lank host an unlicensed after-hours joint in their basement to make ends meet. While the vibrant sounds of Motown create a soundtrack for dreaming, hope and escape, the Detroit streets erupt with racial divide, police brutality and chaos. When Lank offers shelter to a mysterious stranger, tensions in the family rise and the dangers of the streets creep closer to home. Winner of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History, this riveting play looks back to a turbulent time in history and guides us to reflect on the issues of today.
