Moses and Kitch stand around on the street corner—talking smack, passing the time and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and derails their plans. Emotional and lyrical, Pass Over crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, exposing the unquestionable human spirit of young black men who dream about a promised land they’ve yet to find. A provocative riff on Waiting for Godot and the Exodus saga, Pass Over is a rare piece of politically charged theater by a bold new American voice, that was recently adapted for film by Spike Lee, after its stirring World Premiere at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre and subsequent Broadway run at Lincoln Center Theater.
