WINNER! 2019 Lortel Award for Outstanding Play! Moses and Kitch chat their way through yet another aimless day on their local street corner in this groundbreaking mash-up of Waiting for Godot and the Exodus saga. Crafting everyday profanity into poetic and humorous riffs, the friends share their dreams of deliverance, until an ominous stranger changes their world forever. Potent, daring, and breathtakingly theatrical, Pass Over unflinchingly exposes the reality of young black men just looking for a way out.

RUN TIME: One hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission.

CONTENT ADVISORY: This production of Pass Over contains depictions of anti-Black racism, police harassment and brutality, 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.)  If you have additional questions about content, age appropriateness, or stage effects, please call Alex Lonati, our Community Programs and Events Manager, at 617-482-3279.

Sundays: 1/12, 1/19, 1/19 following 3:00 pm performances. Join us for a talkback with artists from the show.
