About Harmony Park
Set on the construction site of a soon-to-be public park in Queens, NY, the friendship between a black foreman and a younger white landscaper is tested when a newly hired crew member's past is revealed. The site the workers are reclaiming is the locality of the brutal murder of two young girls, one black and one white. 
Harmony Park is directed by a founder of the Rep, Barbara Busby (DETROIT). She last directed the highly acclaimed 2016 Rep production of Butler for which she won the Season Subscriber Best Play/Best Director Award. Her cast for Harmony Park consists of four veteran Rep actors, one of which has been away from the Rep for over twenty years. Mark Bishop (ROYAL OAK) who portrays Sam in Harmony Park portrayed Tank in Bullpen back in 1990. Harold Hogan (SOUTHFIELD), the much admired Rep veteran, heads the Harmony Park cast in the role of Ernie, the landscape foreman. Aaron Kottke (DETROIT) portrays Mike, the younger landscaper. Mr. Kottke's last role at the Rep was his acclaimed performance of the mentally challenged son in Sweet Pea's Mama. Samer Ajluni returns to the Rep as a fellow landscaper, Jose. Mr. Ajluni (FARMINGTON HILLS) was last seen at the Rep as the surprise visitor in Forgiving John Lennon.

About the Detroit Repertory Theatre
The oldest professional (Union) nonprofit theatre 
in the State of Michigan, 
the Detroit Repertory Theatre's mission 
is guided by the belief that the sense of community 
is stronger than the forces that splinter and 
that efforts to preserve unity deserve the same 
attention and support 
as the justly cultivated efforts to retain diversity. 
The implicit goal in all the theatre's efforts is 
to produce the best professional theatre while 
fostering cultural democratization of the arts, 
and fighting by example, 
the disturbing level of racism that still exists.

in the geographical heart of the city at 
Parking is Attended, Lighted, Fenced-In and Free.
