    - In partnership with local public libraries, PlayMakers offers a free series of conversations with actors and artists about their craft. These "In the Wings" events are scheduled throughout the season for each Mainstage show.

    Joining us for a discussion about Dominique Morisseau's "Skeleton Crew" will be Engagement Associate Jeri Lynn Schulke, with artists to be announced.

    Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton, this play puts us in one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit, now on shaky ground with the start of the Great Recession. The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family, but the stress and strain of an uncertain future threatens to do more than just gum up the works. In the conclusion to her Detroit Trilogy, Dominique Morisseau takes us deeply into the difficult choices each blue collar worker must face as they see the writing on the wall.

    See "Skeleton Crew" on stage at PlayMakers, Oct 10–28.
