Photo Flash: First Look at Dominique Morisseau's SKELETON CREW at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau. The Globe is the first regional theatre in the country to mount the play, which was presented here as a reading in the 2014 Powers New Voices Festival before an acclaimed Off Broadway run. San Diego director Delicia Turner Sonnenberg makes her Globe debut to helm the award-winning drama, which is presented in association with San Diego's MOXIE Theatre, where Turner Sonnenberg is Founding Artistic Director. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

Times are tough in 2008 Detroit, but there's still one working auto plant. The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family. The firm, compassionate Faye holds them together, and she's only months away from retiring with her full pension. But when she discovers that management has a new plan, she's torn between self-preservation and allegiance to her coworkers.

The cast is led by Tonye Patano (Globe's The Last Goodbye, Craig Noel Award winner for La Jolla Playhouse's Ruined, "Weeds") as Faye and also includes Amari Cheatom (On the Levee at Lincoln Center Theater, Django Unchained) as Dez, Brian Marable (Morisseau's Detroit '67 at Baltimore Center Stage and Detroit Public Theatre) as Reggie, and Rachel Nicks (The Good Negro at The Public Theater, War at LCT3, "Nurse Jackie") as Shanita.

The creative team includes Tim Mackabee (Scenic Design), Jennifer Brawn Gittings (Costume Design), Sherrice Mojgani (Lighting Design), Lindsay Jones (Sound Design), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Peter Van Dyke (Production Stage Manager).

Skeleton Crew runs now through May 7, 2017 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Opening night is Thursday, April 13 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $29, on sale now, and can be purchased online at www.TheOldGlobe.org, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE, or by visiting the Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
