Lines in the Dust, by Nikkole Salter

Final Four Shows


Just four performances remain in our season opening production, the Southeastern regional premiere of Nikkole Salter's "Lines in the Dust," which probes the sensitive topics of integration, racial privilege and school zoning manipulation. 

The plot: When her daughter loses out in the magnet school lottery, Denitra Morgan is determined to find another way to escape their underperforming neighborhood school. Six decades after Brown v. Board of Education, Lines in the Dust questions how far we've come in matters of race and class, and more importantly, asks where we must go from here.

"...mind-blowing production of the Tennessee Women's Theater Project needs to be seen by everyone."
-- Sean SipleTennessee Core Values Tour blog

"...shines a light on important issues that deserve our attention"
-- Amy StumpflThe Tennessean

"A compelling exposé of the politics and operation of the educational system...
If you only see one play this year, it should be Lines in the Dust."
-- Roy Berko, Broadway World/Cleveland
