Concert Description

PIPELINE by Dominique Morisseau
October 4 - November 4
Directed by Candis Jones


Dominique Morisseau, daughter of Detroit and world renowned playwright (Detroit ‘67 and Skeleton Crew, Shameless, Ain’t Too Proud), brings another of her extraordinary works home to Detroit Public Theatre. In the riveting Pipeline that premiered at Lincoln Center in 2017, Morisseau gives us the story of Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher committed to her students, yet desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities her students will never have, and a mother’s hopes for her son clash with an educational system rigged against him.

Dominique Morisseau has written some quietly devastating social dramas (“Skeleton Crew”) on her way up, but now the playwright has definitely arrived with this emotionally harrowing, ethically ambiguous drama that raises barbed questions about class, race, parental duty, and the state of American education.
