WAM Theatre’s 2018 Fresh Takes Play Reading Series continues with “Pipeline” by Dominique Morisseau on Sunday at 2 pm, at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass. In “Pipeline,” Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is both committed to her students and desperate to give her only son opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident in his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. Morisseau won a 2018 Obie Award for Playwriting for the Lincoln Theatre Company production of “Pipeline.”
