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, Morisseau pens 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 —
and brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Pipeline comes to Dallas after a celebrated run at New York City's Lincoln Center and a broadcast on PBS.
