The Chatham Community Players is excited to present virtually staged reading of Dominique Morisseau’s “PIPELINE” as a part of their successful Sundays @ 7 play reading series. One Night ONLY – Sunday, October 18th at 7:00 PM. Gwen Ricks-Spencer directs.
A mother’s hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him in PIPELINE, the riveting play by Dominique Morisseau (Skeleton Crew).
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. Don’t miss this 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.
