Three provocative dramas make up Dominique Morisseau's sweeping examination of the sociopolitical history of Detroit: Detroit '67, which takes place during the race riots of 1967, Paradise Blue, set in a small jazz club in Detroit's Blackbottom neighborhood, and Skeleton Crew, which explores an auto plant on the eve of the 2008 financial collapse.
