Nya, an inner-city public school teacher, strives to give her only son Omari the opportunities her own students will never have. When he is threatened with expulsion from his upstate, private school, she must confront his rage and her own parenting choices. A lyrical play by Dominique Morisseau praised by the NY Times for “piercing eloquence” about “family struggling to outrun social prophecy.”
