Pipeline is an intimate play about the story of a mother’s hopes for her son and their clash with an educational system rigged against him. The story follows Nya Joseph (Karen Pittman), a dedicated, inner-city public high school teacher, who is committed to her students’ achievement, while she sends her only son, Omari (Namir Smallwood), to a private boarding school. When Omari is involved in a controversial incident which threatens him with expulsion from his school, Nya is forced to reconcile Omari’s rage, her own parental decisions, and the public and private school systems, as she rallies to save her son.
Additionally, BroadwayHD has curated a special playlist on the streaming service of performances from the Roundabout Theatre. Starting this week, viewers at home can watch digital captures of the musical Holiday Inn, the sharply funny and honest play If I Forget, On The Exhale, a play by Martín Zimmerman and the musical She Loves Me.
