About Skeleton Crew

In the breakroom of the last small auto plant still standing, a makeshift family of workers swap stories, share dreams, and take pride in their work. When confronted with the possibility of the factory closing, power dynamics shift and each is pushed to the limits of survival. Inspired by August Wilson’s Century Cycle, Dominique Morisseau’s bold and compassionate new play is part of her Detroit Project play cycle.

Approximate run time: 2 hours, including one 10-minute intermission. Please note: This production includes the smoking of herbal cigarettes.

Dominique Morisseau“I am extremely excited to share my play about the working class in Detroit with the people of Boston and connect through our common cores. I've seen many brilliant works at the Huntington Theatre Company and have had transformative experiences. It feels right to join the ranks of some of my favorite writers and become part of the extended community of this urgent and necessary theatre.”— Playwright Dominique Morisseau
