Pipeline

By Dominique Morisseau

October 19 - November 3, 2019
Previews October 17 & 18

A mother’s hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him in Pipeline, the riveting new play by Dominique Morisseau, brought to you this fall by Nashville Repertory Theatre. 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.
