Detroit ()

Produced by

The Coal Mine Theatre

Playwright: Lisa D’Amour
Director: Jillian Harper


The Coal Mine (1454 Danforth Ave)


July 3rd, 2022 – August 7th, 2022


A darkly-comic, searingly acute observation of the effects of deep economic uncertainty on the middle-class, D’Amour’s play revolves around two suburban couples meeting at a barbecue in a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit. As the action unfolds, one couple reveals that they met at rehab, and neither is employed. A quintessential cookout quickly turns into something more dangerous. — and filled with potential.  (
