Skeleton Crew

Date: Tuesday, December 31 2019 to Sunday, March 1 2020

Join Yellow Tree for a powerful performance about family, work, and the American Dream!

At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in hard-hit Detroit is on shaky ground and four workers are forced to choose how to move on if the plant goes under. Shanita, a second-generation plant worker, has to support herself and her unborn child. Faye, a union rep on the line for 29 years, faces homelessness. Dez, young and hot-headed, has dreams bigger than the plant but ambition has made him reckless. Power dynamics shift as the plant’s closing becomes imminent, and their foreman, Reggie, is torn between doing right by his work and family, and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and poetic, Skeleton Crew is an emotionally bracing and relevant story of working class survival amidst the eroding American dream. “A deeply moral and deeply American play.” – The New York Times
