Starts Friday – ‘Pipeline’

“Pipeline” tells the story of Nya, a public high school teacher, who sends her son, Omari, to a private boarding school in hopes of giving him opportunities not available to her students. But an incident at school could get Omari expelled, and Nya must deal with his anger, her parenting decisions and her struggle to give him a future out of the school-to-prison pipeline. Compelling and timely, “Pipeline” was one of the most- produced plays in the country in 2019. Times vary through Nov. 7. 114 W. Broad St. $35-$56. (804) 282-2620 or Va-Rep.org
