Pass Over

Show Overview

Pass Over
by Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu

"Powerful & Provocative" - The Guardian "Stunning & Lyrical …should be on every theatergoer’s must see list” - Broadway World


It's like Waiting for Godot meets Do the Right Thing!

THRILLING, POETICAL, and UNFLINCHING.”
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune


In Nwandu's morbidly funny play, the playwright spins profanities into poetic, musical, and humorous riffs.
Moses and Kitch, stuck in the Ghetto and at the crossroads, talk smack, pass the time, and hope that maybe today will be different.

Periodically ducking bullets and managing visits from a genial but ominous stranger and an hostile police officer, Moses and Kitch rely on their banter and humor to get them through a day that seems a hopeless retread of every other day, even as they continue to dream of their deliverance

Pass Over won the 2019 Lortel Award for Outstanding Play and was the first show to open on Broadway (at the newly renamed August Wilson Theatre) after the Pandemic.
it now opens Lost Nation Theater's 2023 Season!
