Michael Frayn's Noises Off is a roller-coaster, side-splittingly funny look at theatre -- both onstage and off -- as a hapless troupe of actors attempt to mount a dreadful, ill-fated farce of a play. From the disastrous dress rehearsal as the cast fumbles entrances, exits and bothersome props, to the final performance of missed cues and forgotten lines, Noises Off will have you roaring with laughter as the cast's collective sanity slowly unravels. New York Times critic Frank Rich called it, "the funniest play written in my lifetime."

Written by Dominique Morisseau, who was the 2014 recipient of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History and a 2016 Obie Award Winner for Skeleton Crew,CTC is thrilled to present Detroit '67. The play is set on the eve of the explosive riots that ravaged Detroit in July, 1967. As the music and politics of the Motown era sizzle in the background, this moving, sharp-eyed drama explores the resilience of one family's - and one American city's - survival. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune,this is: "A poetic play of fire-fueled dreams and frustrated love that is set against a backdrop of historic social unrest in Motown." This show includes adult language and may not be suitable for children under age 14.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by TBD

In this, Shakespeare's most famous love story, perhaps the most famous ever written, Love is romantic, overpowering, passionate, violent, and ultimately redemptive. The hot summer days of Verona create a pressure cooker in this timeless tale of young lovers caught between feuding families and swept away by the powerful nature of Love.
