"Blazingly theatrical and thrillingly tense". ~ New York Times

"In the insanity of a city filled with guns, and people ready and willing to use them whenever temperatures rise, waiting isn't so much a malaise as a badge of survival . . . a very potent and promising play . . . The language in the work is thrilling, poetical." ~Chicago Tribune

About the Play
Characters Moses and Kitch stand on the corner passing time and daydreaming about a different life. A stranger arrives and inserts himself into their moment, upsetting their fantasy and more.
Spike Lee directed the 2018 film version of the play.

Pass Over was the first play to reopen on Broadway during the pandemic!
