Pass Over
A Play by Antoinette Nwandu

Directed by Erica Sutherlin

Signature Event Series Social Justice Initiative

The Studio@620 & Outcast Theatre present a collaborative theatrical production of “Pass Over” by Antoinette Nwandu.

In Pass Over, Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu’s “powerful and provocative” (Arifa Akbar, The Guardian) new play, Moses and Kitch talk smack, pass the time, and hope that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space and disrupts their plans. Evoking heartbreak, hope, and joy over its 95 minutes, PASS OVER crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, illuminating the unquestionable human spirit of young men looking for a way out.

A provocative riff on Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a rare piece of politically charged theater by a bold new American voice. (Concord Theatricals)
