Nya is a single mother who teaches at a public high school. As a devoted teacher who works hard for the success of her students, she’s convinced of the importance of a good education. Despite the difficult conditions, Nya strives for her teenage son, Omari, to succeed in a private school. The situation escalates when Omari sees himself involved in a serious incident that threatens his future. To solve matters, Nya must find a way to keep her enraged son in school, and more importantly, to remain connected to him.

Pipeline refers to the sociological phenomenon described as a vicious circle of young people who are excluded from the school system quickly falling victim to this “school-to-prison pipeline” and being forced into the prison system. This play raises questions about the importance of education, identity, and more importantly parenting, discussing in-dept how equality of opportunity depends on social class and ethnicity.
