Skeleton Crew
by Dominique Morisseau
A Co-Production with New Dawn Theatre
directed by Austene Van
January 31 – March 1 | Rehearsals begin January 6, 2020

All Roles Available:

Faye- Black woman, mid-to-late fifties. Working-class woman. Tough and a lifetime of dirt beneath her nails. Somewhere, deep compassion.

Dez- Black man, mid-to-late twenties.  Working-class young man. Young hustler, playful, street-savy, and flirtatious. Somewhere, deeply sensitive.

Shanita- Black woman, mid-to-late twenties. Working-class young woman. Pretty but not ruled by it. Hard-working. By-the-books. Believes in the work she does. Also, pregnant. Somewhere, a beautiful dreamer.

Reggie- Black man, late thirties. White-collar man. Studious. Dedicated.  Compassionate. The Foreman. Somewhere, a fire brims.

At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in hard-hit Detroit is on shaky ground and four workers are forced to choose how to move on if the plant goes under. Shanita, a second-generation plant worker, has to support herself and her unborn child. Faye, a union rep on the line for 29 years, faces homelessness. Dez, young and hot-headed, has dreams bigger than the plant but ambition has made him reckless. Power dynamics shift as the plant’s closing becomes imminent, and their foreman, Reggie, is torn between doing right by his work and family, and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and poetic, Skeleton Crew is an emotionally bracing and relevant story of working class survival amidst the eroding American dream.  “A deeply moral and deeply American play.” – The New York Times
