ASU Black Theatre Organization presents
Written by Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Crestcencia Ortiz-Barnett
"Pipeline" takes a deep look into the American educational system for underprivileged students. Nya is an inner-city high school teacher whose son, Omari, is educated at a private boarding school. She is desperate to give him opportunities that her students will never see and she is determined to fight for his future. The title of the play refers directly to the US ‘school-to-prison pipeline’, whereby underprivileged and disadvantaged students are funneled out of public education and into juvenile and criminal justice systems.
The Feb. 26 show at 2 p.m. will feature a talkback panel discussion about the school-to-prison pipeline following the performance.
This event is free and open to the public.
Seating is limited. RSVPs are highly recommended.
