On November 18, 1978, 918 Americans died in the jungles of Guyana in a place named Jonestown. Many know this as a story of mass suicide where crazed cultists assassinated a congressman and then drank poisoned kool-aid, but there is much more to be told. Puzzle Piece Theatre begins its fifth season with this docu-drama form of theatre that preserves the humanity of a group of socially-concsious individuals who wanted to leave the world a better place.
Emmy-nominated writer of HBO Films “The Laramie Project” works with Puzzle Piece to bring a current and relevant Detroit update to her script for this very rare Michigan premiere.
Friday and Saturday, 8pm
Sunday matinees, 2pm
Tickets are $20 by advance reservation.
