A Pulitzer Prize Finalist and one of The New York Times top ten plays of 2012



Fire up the grill... and expect fireworks! In a suburb of a mid-sized American city, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a cookout. But as this foursome bonds over backyard barbecues, the neighborly connection they find threatens to unravel the lives they’ve built and change them forever. Ecstatic and dangerously funny, Detroit rips up the floorboards to reveal the racing heart under the suburban dream.


Artistic Director Sean Lewis  says: "Detroit could stand in for Coralville or North Liberty in this visceral piece. Who are our neighbors? If you like your comedy to be smart, impolite and unapologetic you have found your show."
