Event Series Event Series: PASS OVER by Antoinette Nwandu

PASS OVER by Antoinette Nwandu

May 1 at 8:30 am - 10:30 am

$10 – $30
A collage of Pass Over guests: DIJI as Kitch; Brandon Burditt as Moses; Taneisha Duggan, director; and Orlando Grant as Mister/Ossifer

Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu’s powerful new play is as if Beckett’s Waiting for Godot meets Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing. In this unforgettable theatrical experience, two young Black men, talk & rap their way through an aimless day, hoping that today may be different.

Periodically ducking bullets and visits from a genial but ominous stranger and an overtly hostile police officer, Moses and Kitch rely on their banter to get them through the day and dream of their promised land. Evoking heartbreak, hope, and joy, PASS OVER crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, illuminating the unquestionable human spirit of young men looking for a way out.

(Warning: Liberal use of profanities and the n-word as key to the play’s linguistical landscape. Gun shots and sounds of car backfires are also present.)
