Our Story. Our Stage. Our Time


Plowshares Theatre Company exists for everyone

It provides a stage for those who never had one. It provides a platform for those who need one. It shines a spotlight on lessons learned by our ancestors. And it shines a light forward for the next generation to follow. It creates a safe space to start a dialogue and a place for the talent of Detroit to rise up and inspire.


A New Musical about Our City

Plowshares Theatre Company, presents Hastings Street. The world premiere musical is set on the cusp of change in Detroit. Sporting a book and score written by local artists John Sloan III and Kris Johnson, Hastings Street, explores the lives of Detroiters at a moment when the city was rewriting the lives and landscape of thousands of African Americans in the name of progress.
