About Skeleton Crew

Written by Detroit native, Dominique Morisseau.

This show is generously supported by Our Daily Work/ Our Daily Lives.

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 faces how and 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.

Skeleton Crew is directed by Ixion artistic director jeff croff. It stars Rose Jangmi Cooper, Daniel Bonner, Regina Hurd and Thespie award-winning actor Markitwia Jackson
