PIPELINE


Written by Dominique Morisseau 
Directed by Greg Williams Jr.

“PIPELINE SHOWCASES AN AMERICAN PLAYWRIGHT IN FULL BLAZE!” —Huffington Post

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away?

With profound compassion and lyricism, PIPELINE brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Don’t miss this deeply moving story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future —without turning her back on the community that made him who he is.
