‘DETROIT '67' Takes a City-wide Tour

The Detroit Public Theatre will present a city-wide tour of ‘Detroit '67’, the award-winning play by Detroit playwright Dominique Morisseau, beginning Sunday, July 23 at Gordon Park, located at the intersection of 12th & Clairmount in Detroit. The date and location have historical significance as the intersection was a scene of violence and turmoil that sparked the deadly, five-day ordeal that changed Detroit forever 50 years ago. 

The production is part of the cultural events of Detroit '67: Looking Back to Move Forward:  a Community Engagement Project of The Detroit Historical Society. 

 

Director Courtney Burkett and actor Brian Marable visited the Fox2 News Studios Saturday morning to preview the show.

 

The 7-date community tour is free and runs through Oct. 14. Tickets will be available on a first come first serve basis one hour before each performance.
