"Don't let summer daze blind you to Skeleton Crew's powerful fireworks." - Broad Street Review

"Flawlessly written" - WHYY

"Engrossing and explosive" - The Philadelphia Inquirer

A group of autoworkers confronts the eroding manufacturing industry in this powerful story of love and loyalty. The firm, compassionate Faye, only months away from retiring with her full pension, discovers she must choose between self-preservation and allegiance to her coworkers. Funny, incisive, and “deeply American” (The New York Times), “theatergoers won’t want to miss” this wildly successful Off-Broadway hit (Huffington Post). Written by People’s Light New Play Frontiers writer, Dominique Morisseau.
