About Pipeline:

By Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Cheryl Lynn Bruce

“Pipeline confirms Dominique Morisseau’s reputation as a playwright of piercing eloquence.” — The New York Times

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son, Omari, opportunities her students will never have. When a controversial incident at his 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 poetry, Dominique Morisseau’s (Skeleton Crew, Detroit ’67, and the Broadway-bound Ain’t Too ProudPipeline brings to light a powerful and important conversation about parenthood, the state of our public school system, and the prison pipeline that claims so many of our inner city youth.
