Event Description

The School of Theatre and Dance presents an online production of Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau.

SYNOPSIS: Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they will 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. 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.

Performances will be presented via zoom and are free to attend, although registration is required. Registration closes two hours before each performance and is limited to 300 attendees. Register here!
