Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau

Thursday, August 22 through Saturday, August 31
Duke Energy Theatre
Presented by Three Bone Theatre Inc.

Three Bone Theatre presents the Charlotte premiere of Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau, directed by Sidney Horton.

Winner of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award

Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll 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. In one of her newest works, 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.

Pipeline is at once an homage to such authors as Lorraine Hansberry, Langston Hughes and Amiri Baraka and yet firmly the product of a unique, deeply resonant sensibility.”- Deadline

Pipeline is an emotionally harrowing, ethically ambiguous drama that raises barbed questions about class, race, parental duty, and the state of American education.” –Variety

There will be six performances of Pipeline- August 22-24 and 29-31 at 8:00pm at the Duke Energy Theatre at Spirit Square.
