PIPELINE

by Dominique Morisseau; directed by Marisa Hébert
Free virtual reading Sunday March 14th at 4pm; full production Summer 2022


Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, commits everything to her students. At the same time, she is desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities her students will never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens him, Nya must confront her choices as a parent. 

Dominique Morisseau is the author of The Detroit Project (A 3-Play Cycle) which includes: Skeleton Crew, Paradise Blue, and Detroit ’67. She is also the TONY nominated book writer on the Broadway musical Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations, as well as being a 2018 MacArthur ‘Genius’ grant award winner. 

Each of our readings features a full cast of actors, who gather to rehearse with a director for fifteen hours, and then share the story with our audience via a live streamed reading.  

The readings are made possible through Theatre Authority; all artists are compensated for their participation. The readings are absolutely free; donations welcome.
