The Geffen Playhouse's Los Angeles premiere production of Dominique Morisseau's Skeleton Crew is set for its upcoming June 13 opening night. Patricia McGregor directs the production, which is scheduled to run through July 8. Check out photos in the gallery below.


Skeleton Crew features Amari Cheatom (Roman J. Israel, Esq.) as Dez, Caroline Stefanie Clay (Broadway's The Little Foxes) as Faye, Kelly McCreary (Grey's Anatomy) as Shanita, and D.B. Woodside (Lucifer) as Reggie.

Skeleton Crew follows four coworkers at a Detroit auto factory in 2008. The play highlights the layered relationships and drama of blue-collar workers navigating the instability and uncertainty in their personal lives and at work.

Skeleton Crew is one of Morisseau's three-play Detroit Project cycle which also includes Detroit '67 and Paradise Blue. In 2017, McGregor directed Washington, DC's Studio Theatre production of Skeleton Crew, in which Clay also starred.

The creative team will include scenic designer Rachel Meyers, costume designer E. Sosa, lighting designer Pablo Santiago, and sound designer Everett Elton Bradman.
