About Pass Over
Kitch and Moses seem stuck on their street corner, but it don’t matter. They joke, dream, and throw down about the promised land they’re heading to just as soon as they get up off the block—what they’ll eat, who they’ll see, whether today’s the day they’ll pass over. Allegorical and immediate, humorous and chilling, Nwandu’s collision of the Exodus saga and "Waiting for Godot" probes the forces that have marooned these young Black men, and the power and limitations of their personal resilience. "Pass Over" is about the dreams of generations of young Black men marooned in a cycle of violence and yearning for the promised land.
"Pass Over" contains depictions of anti-Black racism, police harassment and brutality, the shooting of an unarmed Black man, strong language, and frequent use of the n-word (both as an expression between two black friends and as a racial epithet used by a white person.)
Recommended for mature audiences. Contains depictions of police harassment and brutality, the shooting of an unarmed Black man, strong language, and frequent use of the n-word.
