Play set in the Detroit automotive industry during the 2008 financial crisis where the line between blue collar and white collar workers becomes blurred.
Skeleton Crew on Broadway Background
From Dominique Morisseau a warm-blooded, astute, deeply moral and deeply American play. Directed by MTC’s flavor-of-the-month, Tony-winning Artistic Advisor Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
What’s Skeleton Crew Like?
A working family must reckon with their personal loyalties, their instincts for survival and their ultimate hopes for humanity during the financial meltdown of 2008.
Factories are closing and auto workers are being laid-off across America. There is still a skeleton crew still pounding out a few cars per day. The line between blue collar and white collar is becoming blurred. Their struggle is the quintessential American struggle.
Is Skeleton Crew Good for Kids?
Due to the adult themes in this play, the show is not recommended for person under 16 years of age
