About PASS OVER: Moses and Kitch chill on the corner talking smack, passing the time, and hoping that today a miracle will come. They stand by a lamppost in a present-day ghetto, but it's also a plantation, and it's also Egypt, a city built by slaves. A provocative mashup of Waiting for Godot and the Exodus saga, Pass Over exposes the unquestionable human spirit of young black men who dream about a promised land they've yet to find.
"Imbued with hip-hop lyricism and biblcal resonance, Pass Over is a 90-minute meditation on much of human history, seen through the experiences of two pulsating and frequently terrified black men....The play does not universalize; it makes it essential, insisting that this crisis is very real, very dangerous, and made all the more threatening by complacency...(Moses and Kitch) are characters in a play, but also they are urgently real." —Patrick Maley, NJ.com/Star Ledger
