Pass Over

Pass Over

Written by Antoinette Nwandu

Directed by Christina Franklin

July 28-August 7


Moses and Kitch want out of their Chicago neighborhood and off the corner to which they are tethered. They dream of the things that await them in the Promised Land—clean socks and the return of a dead brother—if only if they can pass over. This “surreal and morbidly funny existential drama” (Variety) was the first play performed when Broadway reopened in 2021.


Christina Franklin, whose work on 2021’s The Niceties received a Berkshire Theatre Critics nomination, returns for her second season at CTC. Moses and Kitch are yet to be cast; the production will also feature Berkshire Theatre Critics award winner James Barry playing two roles.
