Pipeline
Presented by: Studio Theatre
Nya is a Black single mom and dedicated teacher at a high-poverty city school, determined to give her teenaged son Omari opportunities that her students will never have. When an altercation with a teacher at his private school threatens Omari’s future, Nya has to fight a system that’s against him in any environment. A searing, eloquent, and deeply compassionate look at a broken education system, the price Black men pay for their anger, and the ferocity of one parent’s love. Dominique Morisseau returns to Studio after last season’s acclaimed production of SKELETON CREW. Drawn from her mother’s experience as a public school teacher in Detroit—and Dominique’s own observations about the unacknowledged but ingrained racism in privileged education institutions—PIPELINE is both a clear-eyed analysis about the costs of systemic racism and a love song to literature’s power to reflect and transform lives.

Spring Lottery

Pass Over
Presented by: Studio Theatre
Kitch and Moses seem stuck on their street corner, but it don’t matter. They joke, dream, and throw down about the promised land they’re heading to just as soon as they get up off the block—what they’ll eat, who they’ll see, whether today’s the day they’ll pass over. Allegorical and immediate, humorous and chilling, Nwandu’s collision of the Exodus saga and Waiting for Godot probes the forces that have marooned these young Black men, and the power and limitations of their personal resilience. What if the stories that have shaped you are also a trap? That’s the question at the heart of Antoinette Nwandu’s contemporary riff on Waiting for Godot. In distilled but approachable language, PASS OVER is a playful and haunting journey through some of the many moments young Black men have been exhorted to wait—from bondage in Egypt to chattel slavery in the US to Civil Rights era promises of freedom—and what happens when the future holds not the promised land, but the deadly violence that racism renders ordinary for young Black men in America.
