D’Amour’s ‘Detroit’ Heads To Off -Broadway

DETROIT (AP) – Playwright Lisa D’Amour will have to wait a little longer for her Broadway debut.

The off-Broadway company Playwrights Horizons plans to produce D’Amour’s “Detroit” next fall. The offbeat work was expected to land this fall on Broadway.

The play is set in a Detroit suburb and centers on a couple who invite their new neighbors over for a barbecue only to slowly find their friendship veering out of control.

The play helped make D’Amour a 2011 Pulitzer Prize finalist. It had its world premiere last year at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company starring Laurie Metcalf.

No casting has been announced for the Playwrights Horizons run.
