Dominique Morisseau’s play Pipeline tells the story of a woman fighting to keep her son from being sucked into the school to prison pipeline.
Chicago poet Gwendolyn Brooks’ famous poem “We Real Cool” serves as a backbone for this work which is an in depth examination of the education system and parenthood.
The play is on stage at Victory Gardens Theater in Lincoln Park through March 3.
GUEST: Cheryl Lynn Bruce, director of Pipeline
