Where do you go when the line stops moving?
At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family, but the stress and strain of an uncertain future threatens to do more than just gum up the works. Part of her career-spanning series of odes to the Motor City, Dominique Morisseau takes us deeply into the difficult choices each blue collar worker must face as they see the writing on the wall.
“A very fine new play! Squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller, a deeply moral and deeply American play.”
The New York Times
“Morisseau has heart! Her rough-edged dialogue has a touch of street poet.”
2 hours, plus one 15-minute intermission
