When Sharon and Kenny move into a long-empty house in the suburbs of an American city, they are welcomed by neighbours Ben and Mary. But, fuelled by alcohol and backyard barbecues, their new friendship veers rapidly out of control as inhibitions are obliterated, laying bare the fragility of Ben and Mary's off-the-shelf lifestyle. Originally produced by Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, Lisa D'Amour's Detroit made its UK premiere at the National Theatre, London, in May 2012.

Reviews

"This scary-funny comedy . . . speaks to the fractious, frightened American moment more perceptively than any play I've seen on a New York stage." "--"Charles Isherwood, "The New York Times""" ""Detroit "is a brilliantly observed piece of art about a particular time and place. That time is now--and by now I mean the current post-recessionary America. That place is a pair of backyards in the suburb of a great American city that has been rocked on its heels." --Chris Jones, "The Chicago Tribune""" ""
