Our Story. Our Stage. Our Time

Welcome

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.

 
Presenting the Magnolia Ballet at the best theatre in Detroit

A POWERFUL, POIGNANT DRAMA

The Magnolia Ballet is a piece written for our times. This poignant tale mixes drama, dance, and poetry to explore the relationship between a father and his queer son in rural Georgia. Ezekiel VI, or “Z,” is unlike the other boys. The death of his mother has taken a toll on him, and his emotionally distant father, Ezekiel V. Z, and his father struggle to define who they are together and separately in their old family home where the ghosts live inside the walls.
Plowshares Theatre Company, Michigan’s only professional African American theatre, is proud to present the Detroit premiere of this emotionally engaging play.
