PIPELINE by Dominique Morisseau: Nya, a committed inner-city public high school teacher, is desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities her students will never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. Morisseau pens an impassioned and compelling story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future despite society’s challenges stacked against them both.

Cez says: “Morisseau brings us an unflinching and highly personal portrait of a national emergency. The power of her appeal demands that we ask ourselves, “What will it take to break the cycle?”
