Lincoln Center Theater will present the world premiere of Dominique Morisseau's new play Pipeline this summer at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, the show will begin performances June 15, with opening night on July 10.

The work is described as follows: "Nya Joseph is a dedicated, inner-city public high school teacher who is committed to her students' achievement, while she sends her only son, Omari, 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 and her own parental decisions, as she rallies to save her son."

Pipeline will have sets by Matt Saunders, costumes by Montana Blanco, lighting by Yi Zhao, sound by Justin Ellington, and projections by Hannah Wasileski. Casting for the production will be announced at a later date.
