Go to school. Get suspended. Get expelled. Go to prison.

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities her pupils will never have. When Omari is involved in a controversial incident at his upstate private school, her hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him. Now, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent without turning her back on the community that shaped him.

Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau draws its name from the unfortunate social phenomenon of the school-to-prison pipeline that effects young black men. Gwendolyn Brooks' prophetic poem, "We Real Cool" is the backdrop of this passionate play about educators who see the humanity in their students and a family struggling to outrun social prophecy.

For studio shows at The Sharon the house will open 30 minutes prior to the show just like at The Studio.
