Summit Performance Indianapolis produces plays that explore the lives and experiences of women. Its next production is a new work from African American female playwright Dominique Morriseau.

From our Arts and Culture Desk, WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with Summit’s Artistic Director and Co-Founder Lauren Briggeman about the play called "Detroit 67" -- that is set against the 1967 riots in Detroit, Michigan.

Summit plans to collaborate with other organizations to make the play available for as many patrons as possible. It’s currently scheduled to go up at the Phoenix Theater in March of 2021.
