Neighbors, comedy mingle in 'Detroit' at Purple Masque Theatre
Kansas State University's K-State Theatre will open its 2013-2014 "second season" -- or Purple Masque Theatre productions -- with "Detroit" by Lisa D'Amour at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3-5 in East Stadium's Purple Masque Theatre.
Somewhere in the suburbs of a mid-size city, Ben and Mary welcome into their lives the rootless couple that moves in next door. But as this foursome bonds over backyard barbecues, the neighborly connection they find threatens to unravel the lives they've built and change them forever. A comedy,"Detroit" exposes the nerves that live just under the surface of American life today.
