Motown music and race riots underscore this family drama about two close-knit siblings who find themselves at odds over inherited property and interracial romance in 1967 Detroit. Playwright Dominique Morisseau, a Detroit native, received a 2018 MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant.” Among her many plays is the Tony-nominated book for the Broadway musical Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations.
The Department of Theatre will present Detroit '67 in a staged reading, with set and costumes. The actors may have scripts in hand.
Tickets: 18, $12 (UNC Charlotte faculty, staff, and alumni), $10 (seniors, active military, and veterans), $8 (students). CoA+A majors receive a complimentary ticket through the 49erArtsLink program.
