A mother's hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him in Dominique Morisseau's riveting play.

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. It is a 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.

Pipeline was premiered at the Lincoln Center Theatre in New York City in June 2017.
