Synopsis: At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. Each of the workers wonder how to move forward if their plant goes under. Shanita has to decide how she'll support herself and her unborn child, Faye wonders where she'll live, and Dez has to figure out how to make his ambitious dreams a reality. Power dynamics shift as their manager Reggie is torn between doing right by his work family, and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and tense, Skeleton Crew is the third of Dominique Morisseau's Detroit cycle trilogy.
"As part of a manufacturing community, Skeleton Crew reminds us of our friends and family who face these challenges every day," observe croff. "This is a great chance to celebrate our community and our state with a script from a Detroit native."
