Skeleton Crew

I’m not asking you to make up happy endings. All I’m asking is that you tell ‘em they can’t write us off. You got to fight for us.

In 2008 Detroit, one of the city’s last surviving car factories is threatened with closure. A tight-knit group of workers face crushing economic reality. Torn between loyalty to each other and their own self-interest, can they hang on to their dreams, to their ambitions, to hope?

Detroit-born playwright Dominique Morisseau’s masterful feeling for voice and character brings depth and authenticity to a story about the human effects of a global financial crisis. A Tony Award-winning hit on Broadway in 2022, Olivier Award-winner Matthew Xia directs its UK premiere production.

“A very fine new play… warm-blooded, astute, deeply moral”New York Times Critic’s Pick

“An impassioned dispatch from an eroding working class. Timely and political and, best of all, brimming with emotion.”Hollywood Reporter
