The drama will star Tonye Patano.
The Old Globe Theatre has announced casting for its upcoming production of Dominique Morisseau's Skeleton Crew, directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg. The production runs April 8-May 7 at the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center.
The cast is led by Tonye Patano as Faye, Amari Cheatom as Dez, Brian Marable as Reggie, and Rachel Nicks as Shanita. The creative team includes Tim Mackabee (scenic design), Jennifer Brawn Gittings (costume design), Sherrice Mojgani (lighting design), and Lindsay Jones (sound design).
Skeleton Crew is described as follows in a press release: "Times are tough in 2008 Detroit, but there's still one working auto plant. The long hours and demanding shifts have turned the line workers into a family. The firm, compassionate Faye holds them together, and she's only months away from retiring with her full pension. But when she discovers that management has a new plan, she's torn between self-preservation and allegiance to her coworkers."
