Pipeline By Dominique Morisseau American Stage January 23 – February 24 Directed by L. Peter Callender A Tampa Bay Area Premiere
TEACH. OUT LOUD. Nya, a single mother teaching at an inner-city public school, wants what’s best for her teenage son, Omari—even if it means sending him to a private school far from their neighborhood. But when an explosive classroom incident threatens Omari’s future, Nya must reevaluate the choices she’s made as a parent and educator. In this lyrical and timely drama, acclaimed playwright Dominique Morisseau brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore, compassionately probing the limits of our education system and a mother’s fight to give her son a future — without turning her back on the community that made him who he is.
“…an homage to such authors as Lorraine Hansberry, Langston Hughes and Amiri Baraka and yet firmly the product of a unique, deeply resonant sensibility.”
