Summary: Detroit,  by Lisa D’Amour, takes place in a suburb outside a midsize American city (aka Detroit).  Ben and Mary fire up the grill to welcome the new neighbors who've moved into the long-empty house next door. The fledgling friendship soon veers out of control, shattering the fragile hold that newly unemployed Ben and burgeoning alcoholic Mary have on their way of life with unexpected comic consequences (https://www.amazon.com/Detroit-Play-Lisa-DAmour/dp/0865478651).  

Play contains adult verbiage and content.
