Skeleton Crew

By Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg
In Association with MOXIE Theatre

Times are tough in 2008 Detroit, but there’s still one working auto plant. The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family. The firm, compassionate Faye holds them together, and she’s only months away from retiring with her full pension. But when she discovers that management has a new plan, she’s torn between self-preservation and allegiance to her coworkers. Ben Brantley of The New York Times called Skeleton Crew “a deeply moral and deeply American play ... squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller.” 2015 Craig Noel Award winner for Director of the Year Delicia Turner Sonnenberg makes her Globe debut.
Contains strong language.

Each Insights Seminar takes place 90 minutes before curtain time on the Tuesday after performances begin, and includes an informal reception 30 minutes before the start.
