What is Antoinette Nwandu's Pass Over play about?
Pass Over is inspired by the biblical Exodus story and Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, which infamously sparked a national debate on prejudice and bias within the theatre community in the States. Nwandu masterfully fuses humour and humanity with poetry into this groundbreaking and politically chared play that dares to expose the heartwrenching experiences of young men in a society that rejects them as undesirables.
Nightfall. A street lamp. Two friends are trying to kill time as they are stuck. Trapped. Waiting for a revolutionary change.
