M.S.A.N. Visits Playhouse Square


In this innovative lyrical drama written by Dominique Morisseau and directed by Steve H. Broadnax III, Nya a devoted inner-city school teacher sends her own son, Omari, to private school. But when a teacher's questions push a button, Omari pushes back. A brawl arises, and Nya’s plans for Omari’s future begin to untangle. Pipeline is a fascinating, must-see portrait of the systemic school-to-prison pipeline and the experience of being a parent to a young black man in America.
