Ebony Road Players is Grand Rapids only Black and Social Justice Theatre Company. We're gathering support to present Detroit '67 as our 2017 Fall mainstage production!
This year marks 50 years since the Detroit Riots if '67. 50 years ago the struggle for Black Justice was being fought and we are celebrating the last 50 years of Black movement! In honor of this occurrence Ebony Road Players is producing Detroit '67 for our Fall mainstage show.
Detroit '67 is an inspiring play by Dominique Morisseau, winner of the 2014 E.M. Kennedy Drama Award, about the lives of two Black siblings struggling to make ends meet by hosting an after-hours club in their Detroit home's basement during the summer of 1967. They cross paths with a newcomer and their lives and relationship are turned upside down, culminating in the city erupting around them in the Riots of '67. Detroit '67 is complex, riveting, and particularly poignant - and all with a Motown feel!
