Curious Theatre presents
January 13 – February 24, 2017
Curious Theatre presents the world premiere of DETROIT ‘67, January 13th through February 24th. It’s the summer of 1967, and the soulful sounds of Motown are breaking records and breaking down barriers. Siblings Chelle and Lank make ends meet by running an unlicensed bar in their Detroit basement, a risky business as police crack down on after-hours joints in black neighborhoods. When Lank offers shelter to an injured white woman, tensions escalate both in their home and in their community—and they find themselves caught in the middle of the violent ’67 uprising. Detroit ‘67 explores a moment rife with police brutality, immense racial divide, and a powder keg of emotions.
This opening is especially exciting because we welcome not only a new playwright to the Rocky Mountain Region, but also a new director to Curious. Idris Goodwin is making his directorial debut here with this show.
Tickets are selling fast for the Rocky Mountain regional premiere of the work of Dominque Morisseau, a writer who is on fire for theatre and for social justice. You won’t want to miss this chance to see her work and the performances of an amazing cast featuring Curious Company Members Jada Suzanne Dixon and Cajardo Lindsey under the direction of hip hop artist, writer, and educator Idris Goodman(who is making his debut at Curious).
Be drawn into the story at Curious Theatre January 13th through February 24th. For tickets or more information contac the box office by calling 303-623-0524 or online at www.curioustheatre.org. Curious Theatre is located at 1080 Acoma Street in Denver.
