TEMPE, AZ – Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA) and Black Theatre Troupe announce their first co-production with the regional premiere of DETROIT ’67 by 2018 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, Dominique Morisseau, FEB. 22 – MAR. 17, 2019.
“Winner of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History,” Detroit ’67 is a powerful play that unfolds during an explosive moment in Detroit when the soulful sounds of Motown are breaking records and breaking down barriers. Siblings Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. When a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, tensions escalate both in their home and in their community—and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 race riots. This powerful drama, making it’s Southwest premiere, is a journey to an important moment in history all set to the soundtrack of 1967.
DETROIT ‘67 features Lillie Richardson as Chelle, Calvin Worthen as Chelle’s brother Lank, Alison Campbell as Caroline. Ashley Jackson appears as Bunny, and  Cornelius Williams in the role of Sly. Ralph Remington, TCA Producing Artistic Director, will direct.
The production runs FEB. 22 – MAR. 17, 2019 at Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 W. Rio Salado Pkwy, Tempe, AZ 85281.
