Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau takes place in Detroit during the 2008 recession as one of the last automobile stamping plants is rumored to close. The play portrays employees on the brink of probable unemployment, facing the pressures of mortgage payments, raising children, and potential homelessness.
