    ‘Skeleton Crew,’ a Tale of Autoworkers in Hard-Hit Detroit

    Ben Brantley

    January 19, 2016: How do you walk a line that keeps disintegrating beneath you? The characters in “Skeleton Crew,” the very fine new play by Dominique Morisseau that opened on Tuesday night at the Atlantic Stage 2, travel an uncertain path between comfort and chaos, lawfulness and criminality, mutual support and blinkered selfishness. You might add to the list that most traditional of opposites, the good and the bad. Then again, are ethics affordable luxuries when your overriding concern is to avoid joining the homeless? What are your obligations to anybody else when it’s all you can do to keep yourself from sliding over the edge? Such questions are being constantly weighed, discarded and picked up once more in this warm-blooded, astute and beautifully acted four-character drama, the third installment in Ms. Morisseau’s trilogy of plays set in Detroit. I suppose you could say these are questions that to some degree haunt everybody in those Darwinian jungles where we fight for our paychecks.
