Detroit Repertory Theatre 60th Anniversary Season
- The Realization of Emily Linder by Richard Strand (November 3–December 23): In this comedy, a retired matriarch claims to have discovered the exact moment of her death. When she begins demanding odd funeral plans from her daughters, her dark revelation warps into a lesson about coming to terms with growing old.
- Firepower by Kermit Frazier (January 5–March 12): For a first-term African American councilman in Washington DC, the stakes have never been higher, politically or personally. Things only get more tense once his two adult sons arrive carrying secrets that could blow up his entire career.
- Capital by James Armstrong (March 23–May 14): A comedy of errors set amid the Communist Manifesto, Capital adapts the life of Karl Marx to a madcap farce—revealing the many ways revolutionary life in 1858 parallels the absurdities of today’s world.
- Countdown to the Happy Day by Thomas W. Stephens (May 25–June 25): Gertie, a troubled army veteran and self made bag lady encounters Cervin, a hulking 7th grade dropout. The emotionally combustible relationship that ensues proves to us and to them, that black lives matter.

About Detroit Repertory Theatre
Although the Detroit Repertory Theatre packs plenty of laugh-grabbers and tear-jerkers into each season, its artists have more on their minds than just entertaining theatergoers. The actors, playwrights, producers, and directors of the Repertory want to unite all Metropolitan Detroit communities under a banner of creativity. It's a lofty ambition, but the theater hasn't lost focus on that goal since it first opened in 1957. As the oldest non-profit professional theater company in the state, it prides itself on having weathered storms economic, social, and literal, and continues to produce four shows a year that remind audiences of the power of live performance.
Those shows often feature scripts from the most promising talents in the Midwest, and aim to be as thought-provoking as they are engaging. The theater follows practices of ethnicity- and gender-blind casting whenever possible, ensuring that the people on stage represent the range of people in the audience. And that dedication to community extends beyond the footlights—the theater welcomes play submissions from local writers, and displays pieces from Michigan artists in the lobby.
