Nya just wants what’s best for her son. But the world isn’t always on his side.

January 8 – February 2, 2019

in the Bingham Theatre

Nya, a single mother teaching at an inner-city public school, wants what’s best for her teenage son, Omari—even if it means sending him to a private school far from their neighborhood. But when an explosive classroom incident threatens Omari’s future, Nya must reevaluate the choices she’s made as a parent and educator. In this lyrical and timely drama, acclaimed playwright Dominique Morisseau urgently calls attention to the limitations of our education system and the legacy of violence confronting black youth in America.
