Detroit
a comedy-drama by Lisa D'Amour

Carpenter Square Theatre opens its 31st Season with the Oklahoma City premiere of “Detroit,” a comedy-drama by Lisa D’Amour.

Premiered by Steppenwolf Theatre, the play was the winner of the 2013 Obie Award for Best New American Play and a 2011 Pulitzer Prize finalist.

The story is set in the neighborhood of “Bright Houses,” a subdivision that was built in the 1960s in a city that could be Detroit. A middle-class husband and wife find their life changing in wildly unexpected ways after they reach out to the new couple that moves in next door.

When Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door, Mary invites the new neighbors over for a barbecue. They discover that the new neighbors, Sharon and Kenny, just recently left a rehab facility for substance abuse, but no matter, the neighbors seem like a breath of fresh air in Ben and Mary’s stagnant suburban life. Ben and Mary are dealing with some troubling personal issues, and the neighbors are willing to listen.

Over the next few weeks, the two couples have more get-togethers and plan outings, but one night the quintessential American backyard party turns into something more dangerous—and filled with potential. “Detroit” is a fresh, offbeat look at what happens when we dare to open up to something new.
