Pam and I took in Detroit at Playwrights Horizons this past weekend. Some terrific actors and its very well-staged. Fire. Blood. Meat cooking. Swirling sets. Fun.
Why does the play take place in the 'suburban outer ring of a mid-sized city' if the play is called Detroit? Is it just Detroit of the mind? The Detroit of the soul? Or does it actually take place in Detroit?
I simply wonder. That's all I do.
