Dry Powder 09/13–09/22
DETROIT—Corporate greed. Out-sourcing. Layoffs. Have you ever wanted to look inside the business world and see how decisions are really made? Assembly Line Theatre Company is giving their audiences an opportunity to do just that, with the staging of the play Dry Powder by Sarah Burgess. Performances will be at the historic Hunt Street Station, an 1897 architectural gem and former Detroit police station located at 2200 Hunt Street, Detroit. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8:00p with Sunday matinees at 2:00p. Tickets can be purchased at: www.brownpapertickets.com In Dry Powder, the same week Rick’s private equity firm forces massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, he throws himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth, one of Rick’s partners, has a win-win idea: invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from a PR disaster. But Jenny, Seth’s counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the luggage company, no matter the consequences. Dry Powder stars Ken Alter, Anne Damman, Jon Kent, and Jacob Plante. It is directed by Cassandra Svacha and stage managed by Sarah Drum. Show dates are 9/13, 9/14, 9/15, 9/20, 9/21, and 9/22.
