Set against a backdrop of historic social unrest, Detroit ’67 tells the story of siblings Chelle and Lank who make ends meet by hosting late-night parties in the basement of their childhood home. The basement is full of love and laughter but the risk of their unofficial nightclub is high, given an intensifying police presence in the neighborhood. When Lank comes to the aid of a battered white woman, dangers increase. Relationships between black and white, brother and sister, friend and stranger begin to shift in the inaugural work of Morrisseau’s extraordinary 3-play cycle about her hometown.
