Detroit '67

Detroit Public Theatre is is presenting a city-wide tour of Detroit ’67, the award-winning play by native Detroit playwright, Dominique Morisseau. Marking the 50 year commemoration of the summer of 1967 in Detroit, Detroit Public Theatre invites the public to attend the free performances scheduled in neighborhoods throughout Detroit from July through October, 2017. This touring production was made a possible through an Arts Challenge grant from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Detroit ’67, which received the 2014 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama, explores an explosive and decisive moment in a great American city. The play's compelling characters struggle with racial and economic inequity in a work grounded in history that invites meaningful dialogue on these ongoing and pressing issues in America today.
