ARSHT CENTER’S SEASON OPENS WITH THE PREMIERE OF THE OBIE AWARD-WINNING COMEDY “DETROIT”:
Mary and Ben live in the suburbs near a mid-sized American community. Ben has lost his job as a bank loan officer and is starting a new job of operating an internet site to give help to people who are in debt. Mary and Ben are preparing to welcome their new neighbors Sharon and Henry with a backyard barbecue. They live in a rented house with no furniture. During the course of the play, the characters discuss many things like suburban living and upward mobility, espousal relationships and economic anxiety. Eventually the wonderful relationship gets out of control, affecting the lives of Ben and Mary and the way they used to live with unexpected very comical consequences. The tender misguided relationship between the two women, takes place when they take off for a weekend camping trip in the woods, but only get as far as the gas station. It shows how suburban women can live dangerously on a tightrope when bored. Although hilariously funny, Detroit offers a look into what takes place when we choose to be anything but ourselves. Irene Adjan, Chaz Mena, Matt Stabile and Betsy Graver complete the cast.
Detroit premieres at the Arsht Center in the Carnival Studio Theatre on November 6th, through November 23rd, 2014. Tickets are $45 at the box office located at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. Show times vary. For more info, call: (305) 949-6722.
