BUY APRIL FOOLS FETE LIVESTREAM TICKET WBTT Presents Pipeline, by Dominique Morisseau New production to be filmed onstage at WBTT in Apri Nya, a dedicated 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 private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. Pipeline is an unforgettable story of a mother’s fight to give her son a future, without turning her back on their community. The message of the play is particularly relevant as America battles institutional racism and societal inequalities.|
WBTT guest director L. Peter Callender, Artistic Director of San Francisco’s African-American Shakespeare Company and Artistic Associate at NY Classical Theatre, directs this gripping new production, filmed on the WBTT stage in April. The powerful cast includes Renata Eastlick as Nya and Donovan Whitney as Omari, with Joel PE King, Emilia Sargent, Emerald Rose Sullivan, and Isaac Esau Gay.
