Detroit ’67 [Free community performances] 07/23–10/14

DETROIT—Detroit Public Theatre will present a city-wide tour  of Detroit ’67, the award-winning play written by internationally acclaimed native Detroit playwright, Dominique Morisseau. Marking the 50 year commemoration of the summer of 1967 in Detroit, Detroit Public Theatre invites the public to attend the free performances scheduled in neighborhoods throughout Detroit July through October, 2017.

Detroit ’67, which received the 2014 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama, explores an explosive and decisive moment in a great American city.
