2022 Obsidian Theatre Festival

Musical Theatre Winner

Hastings Street in Detroit in the 1950s, with its businesses and homes, has been slated to fall under the wrecking ball to make way for a highway.


This was part of the urban renewal of the 1950s when the federal government gave millions of dollars to "revitalize" neighborhoods. Many of those neighborhoods were where poor and Black people could only live. Eva and Marie own a poultry and fish store there and are hoping that they don't get a notice to move.


Through urban renewal, Hastings Street, the black mecca in Detroit, will make way for a highway.


One business is hoping that it doesn't get a notice to vacate.
