"The actors came to Flint from theater companies around the country in collaboration with Flint community organizers. They rehearsed together in Flint for only the past two weeks. And when the showings began Thursday night, no one knew who would come — if anyone at all. There were no tickets. Admission was free. A mix of people wandered in over the three-night run: retired auto industry workers, former Flint schoolteachers, retired medical workers, college students."
