Theatre Exile presents ‘Pass Over’


Theatre Exile and Theatre in the X present Antoinette Nwandu’s Pass Over, running June 10-27.

Pass Over tells the story of two black men, Moses and Kitch – friends hanging out on a city street corner, sharing dreams of an escape from their circumstances. When a stranger wanders onto their corner with his own agenda, he derails their plans of finding their promised land. Written by award-winning playwright Antoinette Nwandu, Pass Over is a provocative riff of Waiting for Godot and the biblical Exodus story – a timely take told by a bold American voice.

Nwandu purposely crafted language that some deem “profane” into poetic and humorous conversation, exposing the enduring spirit of two young men seeking a way out of a never-ending cycle.

The show takes place at Hawthorne Park at 12th and Catharine streets and tickets are $15-45. Purchase online at or call 215-218-4022.
