Theatre Morgan presents "PIPELINE"

Theatre Morgan presents "PIPELINE," a play written by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, Dominique Morriseau and directed by Dwight R.B. Cook.

Is "the system" so stacked against young Black and Brown children that it's virtually impossible to avoid the "school to prison pipeline”? This is the story of a mother's desperate attempt to keep her son out of the "Pipeline" and the unexpected consequences of her actions. Nya, a mother and teacher, tries her best to uplift her inner-city students and to keep her only son, Omari, on the right path. Omari currently faces expulsion for an incident at his private school now Nya must look deep within to determine the cause of Omari‘s anger and issues.

Dominique Morisseau’s play shines a spotlight on an urgent and needed conversation about what should be unrelated topics, the school system, and the prison system. Pipeline explores the “school to prison pipeline” which sends children from underfunded and underserved schools straight to largely funded prisons.
