Lisa D'Amour's 'Detroit,' once Broadway-bound, now heading to Playwrights Horizons next fall
NEW YORK (AP) ' Playwright Lisa D'Amour will have to wait a little longer for her Broadway debut.
The off-Broadway company Playwrights Horizons said Monday it will produce D'Amour's "Detroit" next fall. The offbeat work was expected to land this fall on Broadway.
"Detroit" is set in a suburb of that city 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.
