Skeleton Crew is the story of four factory workers at the last automobile stamping plant in Detroit and their struggle to survive as the industry and their way of life is dramatically changed. Set in 2008, the start of the Great Recession, the play takes place in the break room of one of Detroit’s last auto stamping plants, where a makeshift family of co-workers swap stories, share dreams, and take pride in their work. When confronted with the life-altering choices they must face if the factory closes, dynamics shift and each is pushed to the limits of survival. Loyalties are tested and boundaries are crossed.
