Pass Over London brings race to the main stage
The story follows two friends, Moses and Kitch, who are passing time, just waiting for change. The story is set during the night with a lamppost as the backdrop. Taking inspiration from Beckett’s "Waiting for Godot" and the biblical Exodus story, playwright Antoinette Nwandu fuses poetry, humour and humanity in a rare and politically charged new play. Viewers are invited to share the experiences of these young men in a world that refuses to see them. Recommended for teens and adults, the story sparked a conversation about bias and race in the theatre community. Praised for its sobering and emotional dialogue, Pass Over London should be on every theatre-goer’s list. Buy or sell tickets to Pass Over London from StubHub and guarantee a stunning performance that is lyrical and poetic.
Awards and messages to take home
Pass Over debuted at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago in May 2017. It also made the Kilroy's list in the previous year (2016). In 2015, Nwandu was also a finalist for the Ruby Prize for Pass Over. It later made its World Premiere at the Lincoln Centre Theater in New York. Inspired partly by the killing of Trayvon Martin, the play at its core explores present day racism and politics with layers of the past. A filmed version of the play, directed by Spike Lee, also premiered at Sundance and streamed on Amazon Prime. Pass Over took to London theatres in 2020 at the Kiln Theatre.
