Detroit-born playwright Dominique Morisseau has not only earned two OBIE Awards and a MacArthur Genius Grant for her portrayals of Black lives in the city she calls home, her credits also include the book for Temptations jukebox musical Ain’t Too Proud and a co-production on the TV series Shameless. Mountain View’s Pear Theatre presents a run of Morisseau’s 2013 drama Sunset Baby, which follows a former “legendary” Black activist’s attempt to build a relationship with his estranged daughter after the death of his wife. Sunset Baby runs parallel with Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop, both directed by Sinjin Jones.
