Aurora Theatre Company Presents Bay Area Premiere Of DETROIT '67
Aurora Theatre Company opens their 27th season with DETROIT '67 by Dominique Morisseau, author of the hit Temptations musical Ain't Too Proud, and the Obie-award winning Skeleton Crew. Darryl V. Jones (The Royale) directs the Bay Area premiere of this redemptive story of family and survival that won the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History. DETROIT '67 runs August 31 - September 30.
It's 1967. Motown music rules, and Chelle and her brother Lank make ends meet by holding after-hour dance parties in their basement. But when Lank shelters a battered, white woman with a secret past, the siblings clash over more than the family business while riots threaten to burn down the city's black neighborhoods.
