Starting With Us

When: Fridays-Sundays, 8-10 p.m. Continues through April 26 2015

It’s summer break, and a group of Detroit teens is looking forward to celebrating with parties, relaxing, and hanging out on Belle Isle. But when a menacing classmate intrudes in their lives, they find their summer is nothing like they’d expected - and they feel powerless to speak out. What happens when oppression simply goes too far? Can we really trust those in power to protect us? In a modern adaptation of Lope De Vega’s Fuente Ovejuna, the Matrix Teen Company has brought these questions to the stage. Talkbacks with the cast and audiences will occur after each performance.

Price: $8 - $12
