About This Show

The backyard BBQ just ain’t what it used to be.

A finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize, Lisa D’Amour’s Detroit is a wickedly funny satire about surviving in our uncertain economic times and the death of the so-called “American Dream.”

Barely middle-class Ben and Mary fire up the grill to welcome Sharon and Kenny, a couple who moves in next door (suspiciously without furniture). But as this foursome bonds over seared steaks, remembered dreams and helping hands, their neighborly connection turns dangerous, threatening to destroy more than just their friendship.
