This Weekend, See a Timely Drama That Forces Us to Get Uncomfortable – In a Good Way

This Friday, see the play nominated for five 2018 Lucille Lortel Awards, including the title of Outstanding Play. Pipeline, a stirring piece by Dominique Morisseau, documents what happens when a mother’s hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him. Check it out at Horizon Theatre Company on April 19th beginning at 8:00 p.m.

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.
