DETROIT, June 13, 2017 – Matrix Theatre Company has announced an extension of its production of Dream Deferred: Detroit, 1967. The world premiere, original production was set to close June 25 but has been extended through July 9 due to high demand for tickets.

Most performances have sold out with would-be patrons being turned away at the door. “Dream Deferred: Detroit, 1967 is on track to be one of the most successful shows in Matrix’s 26 year history,” said Megan Buckley-Ball, Matrix’s artistic director. “We’re excited that our original production has been so well received and that these vital stories and perspectives will continue to be shared with members of our community.”

Reflecting on a formative moment in Detroit’shistory, this original production unearths, for the first time, real interviews recorded by Dr. Xavier Nicholas following that summer’s uprising. Dream Deferred: Detroit, 1967 gives voice to the unique experiences and perspectives of a cross-section of Detroiters to find out what really happened and how they can learn from the pain of their shared past.

Dream Deferred: Detroit, 1967 will run through July 9 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and on Sundays at 3 PM. There is no performance on Saturday, July 8. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students, seniors, active military personnel, and veterans and may be purchased in advance or, if available, at the door. Group rates are also available.
