Run time: 1 hour and 40 minutes.
It's 1967 in Detroit. Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over more much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the 1967 riots.
Contains strong language and adult themes.
Admission is free. We encourage audience members to bring their own blankets or low profile chairs to sit on. Audience members must wear face masks at all times during the performance.
To aid the flow of foot traffic, we are providing designated entrance points for members of the campus community and members of the public.
Members of the Albion College community (students, staff and faculty) should enter on foot under the Stockwell Memorial Library/Mudd Learning Center sky bridge or the east side of the Academic Quad (facing Baldwin Cafeteria.)
This production is open to the public; however, in line with our plan to be Together Safely this fall, there will be additional health and safety protocols for off-campus visitors to follow.
If you are driving, follow signs directing you to park in the Ferguson parking lot. If you are walking, enter campus from the east corner of Olin Hall (south side of the Academic Quad). Off-campus visitors will be seated in a designated seating area: ushers will be present to direct you.
