Antoinette Nwandu’s Pass Over

Pass Over tells the story of two Black men, Moses and Kitch – friends hanging out on a city street corner, sharing dreams of an escapee from their circumstances. When a stranger wanders onto their corner with his own agenda, he derails their plans of finding their promised land.

Written by award-winning playwright Antoinette Nwandu, Pass Over is a provocative riff of Waiting for Godot and the biblical Exodus story – a timely take told by a bold American voice. Nwandu purposely crafted language that some deem “profane” into poetic and humorous conversation, exposing the enduring spirit of two young men seeking a way out of a never-ending cycle.
