In light of current events involving COVID-19, we are suspending our upcoming performances of Pipeline. The health, safety, and well-being of our staff, artists, and our patrons has been and continues to be our top priority, and with that in mind, we’ve made the decision to suspend the production and performances of Pipeline starting today, March 14, 2020, until further notice to support nationwide efforts to reduce the coronavirus spread.
Written by DOMINIQUE MORRISEAU • Directed by TIFFANY NICHOLE GREENE
Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Studio Theatre, APRIL 3 – MAY 3, 2020
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, 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 — and brings an urgent conversation powerfully to the fore. Pipeline comes to Dallas after a celebrated run at New York City’s Lincoln Center and a broadcast on PBS.
Please expect to be at the show approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
STAY LATE after the show: 15 minutes
