Passing along the following from our friends at Horizon Theatre in Little Five Points…
Just down the street in neighboring Little Five Points, Horizon Theatre has been producing plays for Atlanta audiences for 30 years. Committed to connecting people and their communities, we are consistently on the front end, helping to carve out the local artistic scene. Horizon invites audiences to experience a wide variety of ideas and points of view with seasons full of regional and world premieres from playwrights both local and national.
Currently running at Horizon Theatre is Lisa D’Amour’s Pulitzer Prize finalist play, Detroit. In a suburb of a mid-sized American city, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the long empty house next door and invite their young, hip new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a cookout. Upwardly mobile Ben and Mary are drawn to these live-in-the-moment recovering party animals like moths to a flame. As they bond over backyard barbecues, the neighborly connection they find threatens to unravel the lives they’ve built and change them forever. Ecstatic and dangerously funny, Detroit rips up the floorboards to reveal the racing heart under the suburban dream.
D’Amour writes, “What if two very different couples suddenly became neighbors, and decided to open themselves up to each other? Detroit, even with all its strange and startling turns, is ultimately a play about the potential within people to imagine, discover, and continually unearth secrets about each other and the world.”
We would love to have our neighbors from Virginia-Highland come down the street to enjoy an evening at our theater! Detroit runs until October 19th with performances Wednesday through Sunday.
