      Pipeline

      Join St. Leonard's Ministries at Victory Gardens Theater for a performance to remember! For those of you who loved Lettie, fasten your seat belts for another heart-wrenching tale about hope and second chances with Pipeline. St. Leonard's is proud to partner with Victory Gardens Theater on February 24, 2019, for a breathtaking performance and panel discussion about the family and community impacts of the School to Prison Pipeline. A pre-show reception and post-show panel discussion will accompany this St. Leonard's exclusive performance. Nya, an inner-city public high school teacher, is committed to her students, but desperate to give her only son, Omari, opportunities her students will never have. When a controversial incident at his 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? With profound compassion and poetry, Dominique Morisseau's Pipeline brings to light parents' fears, the state of our public school system, and the prison pipeline that claims so many of our inner city youth in an era of mass incarceration. Sunday, February 24, Victory Gardens Theater. 1:30 p.m. Reception with St. Leonard's Ministries 3 p.m. performance, followed by panel discussion featuring the men of St. Leonard's and Crystal Laura, author of "Being Bad: My Baby Brother and the School-to-Prison Pipeline."
