Forward Theater Company presents Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau

"It is likely the best play you will see this year." - Detroit Free Press

At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. Faye, Dez, and Shanita are a tight-knit family of workers navigating the likelihood of losing their jobs, while their foreman Reggie is torn between his team and his career.

As power dynamics shift, they are all pushed to the limits of forgiveness. When the line between blue-collar and white- collar gets blurred, how much are they willing to risk for each other?

Directed by Jake Penner
Featuring Marti Gobel, DiMonte Henning, Sherrick Robinson, and Candace Thomas
