In a "first ring" suburb outside a midsize American city, Ben and Mary fire up the grill to welcome the new neighbours who’ve moved into the long-empty house next door. The fledgling friendship soon veers out of control, shattering the fragile hold that newly unemployed Ben and burgeoning alcoholic Mary have on their way of life—with unexpected comic consequences. Detroit is a fresh, offbeat look at what happens when we dare to open ourselves up to something new. Premièred at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre to rave reviews, Plosive Productions is thrilled to be the first to bring this devastating comedy to Canada.
