A Pulitzer Prize Finalist and one of The New York Times top 10 plays of the year, Detroit is an explosive dark comedy that brilliantly captures our moment in history. Recently laid off, Ben starts an e­business from his suburban home while his wife, Mary, keeps up a punishing commute to work. But when mysterious new neighbors Sharon and Kenny arrive, the façade of their upwardly mobile lives begins to crack. Soon they find themselves increasingly pulled towards their wild new friends—to incendiary effect. Ecstatic and dangerously funny, Detroit rips up the floorboards to reveal the racing heart under a crumbling suburban dream.

Finalist, 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Winner of the Obie Award for Best New Play.

A smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric — as rich and addictively satisfying as a five­layer dip.
