Detroit

Portland Playhouse (map) Northeast
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Nov. 3 2013

$15-38

The play is called Detroit, but it could be set anywhere: A once working-class neighborhood whose fortunes have changed, the original residents long since moved out. Some houses in disrepair, and others remodeled so extensively that they no longer seem like part of the same neighborhood. And two sets of neighbors, one trying to climb their way up from rock bottom, and the other clinging tightly to a middle-class existence that's threatening to slip away. Portland Playhouse's excellent season opener charts the unlikely friendship between these couples, in a parable whose implications stretch far beyond these Detroit backyards. ALISON HALLETT
