Dominique Morisseau’s “Pipeline” opens Detroit Public Theatre’s fourth season. Detroit-born Morisseau, is a world-renowned playwright having created such works as “Detroit ‘67,” “Skeleton Crew,” “Shameless and “Ain’t Too Proud,” brings another of her works home to DPT.
The play premiered at Detroit’s Lincoln Center in 2017. In it, Morisseau gives the audience a look at the story of Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher committed to her students and desperate to give her only son the opportunities her students may never have. In this work, a mother’s hopes for her son clash with an educational system that is rigged against him.
DPT’s mission is to produce “nationally recognized plays and programs with world-class writers, directors, actors and designers in the heart of Detroit’s cultural district. DPT creates bold relevant work for diverse audiences that illuminates the thrills, joys and challenges of our shared humanity,” said event organizers.
