Please join Elizabeth Kneebone and Alan Berube for a special discussion about their book “Confronting Suburban Poverty in America” following the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company’s performance of “Detroit” on Saturday, September 21. Kneebone, a fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program, and Berube, a senior fellow and deputy director of the program, released the book in May.
Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company’s production of “Detroit,” by Lisa D’Amour, will run from September 9 through October 6. The dark comedy, which is directed by John Vreeke, captures our economic moment and the realities of suburban poverty on a human scale.
Following the 3:00 p.m. performance on Saturday, September 21, Kneebone and Berube will participate in a post-show discussion about the changing geography of poverty and ways to alleviate poverty in our community.
