The Wilbury Theatre Group presents the New England premiere of this critically acclaimed play from Lisa D’Amour, Detroit, a gripping and often hilarious new x-ray of the embattled American psyche. In a “first ring” suburb outside a mid-sized American city, Ben and Mary fire up the grill to welcome the new neighbors who have moved into the long-empty house next door. The fledgling friendship soon veers out of control, shattering the fragile hold Ben and Mary have on their way of life. Winner of the 2013 Obie Award for Best New American Play and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize,Detroit is a fresh, off-beat look at what happens when we dare to open ourselves up to something new.
The Wilbury Theatre Group presents Detroit by Lisa D’Amour, directed by Josh Short, September 19-October 6. Featuring Alexandra Lawrence*, Michael Locicero, Melissa Penick, David Rabinow and Richard Noble.
