Thrilling new Pipeline Cincinnati play sheds light on the dark side of the education system.

 

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, commits herself to her students but desperate to give her only son, Omari, opportunities they’ll never have. When an explosive incident at his prestigious private school threatens to get him expelled, will all her efforts be lost? See a compelling, must-see portrait of parenthood, education, and the experience of young black men in America. Pipeline brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the forefront.
