BRUNSWICK — The Theater Project of Brunswick will open its 2017-2018 season with “Detroit” by Lisa D’Amour, running Oct. 12 through Oct. 29.

Director Christopher Price leads a cast of four professional actors in this dark comedy that revolves around a modern middle class struggle. In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors, Sharon and Kenny, over for a barbecue.

As the action unfolds, we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed and they don’t own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American backyard party quickly turns into something more dangerous — and filled with potential.

The Theater Project will be donating 5 percent of all ticket sales from “Detroit” to UNICEF USA’s Hurricane Relief Effort in Puerto Rico.

Performance times are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. All tickets are pay-what-you-want, available online anytime at, or by calling the box office at 207-729-8584. The Theater Project is located at 14 School St.
