Tennessee Women's Theater Project opens its eleventh season in North Nashville's Looby Theater with the regional premiere of a play that addresses a timely dilemma. Opening October 6 for three weekends, Nikkole Salter's "Lines in the Dust" 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."

"...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."
