After premiering at NYC’s prestigious Lincoln Center Theater last year, “Pipeline” is engaging Pittsburgh audiences in a highly relevant conversation about education, class, race and family in America.
Penned by Obie Award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau, “Pipeline” has been described as a “powerful and poetic chronicle of injustice that exposes the cracks in our education system.”
Featuring an original score composed by local students from 1Hood Media Academy, the play follows Omari, who is suspended from a prestigious, and mostly white, private school after an incident involving a teacher. Directed by Reginald L. Douglas, “Pipeline” stars Khalil Kain, Nambi E. Kelley, Gabriel Lawrence, Sheila McKenna, Carter Redwood and Krystal Rivera.
