MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University's K-State Theatre will open its 2013-14 "second season" with "Detroit" by Lisa D'Amour at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday in East Stadium's Purple Masque Theatre.

Somewhere in the suburbs of a mid-size city, Ben and Mary welcome into their lives the rootless couple who move in next door. But as this foursome bonds over backyard barbecues, the neighborly connection they find threatens to unravel the lives they've built and change them forever. A comedy, "Detroit" exposes the nerves that live just under the surface of American life today.

Tickets are $7 for the general public, seniors and military, and $4 for students. They can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by phone at (78) 532-6428.

Student cast and crew members for "Detroit" include Russell's Victoria Ptacek, a sophomore majoring in theater, who will play the role of Sharon.
