Recently featured on Live from Lincoln Center on PBS, Obie Award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau presents an urgent conversation about the state of the American education system presented against a backdrop of landmark African-American literature. Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students but desperate to give her only son Omari opportunities they’ll never have. When a controversial incident at his upstate private school threatens to get him expelled, Nya must confront his rage and her own choices as a parent. But will she be able to reach him before a world beyond her control pulls him away?
