Zona Abierta: Pipeline
Play written by Dominique Morisseau and directed by Cheryl Lynn Bruce.

Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center in partnership with Victory Gardens Theater

With profound compassion and poetry, Dominique Morisseau’s “Pipeline” brings light to a powerful and important conversation about parenthood, the state of our public school system, and the prison pipeline that claims so many of our youth.

Join us for an interactive conversation with cast from Victory Gardens Theater: Matthew Elam and Aurora Real De Asua, discussion facilitated by Dr. P. Zitlali Morales. They will discuss themes that emerge from their performance as they use theater through a social justice lens. Find out what we can do to take action in our communities!
