Five seconds into the future. It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and eighty-five-year-old Marjorie – a jumble of disparate, fading memories – has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What will we remember, and what will we forget, given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits – if any – of what technology can replace.
Moses and Kitch, two African American youths, dream of a promised land, when a stranger wanders into the space — a stranger with his own agenda who derails their plans. Emotional and lyrical, Pass Over crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, exposing the unquestionable human spirit of young men stuck in a cycle that they are desperately trying to escape. A provocative riff on the Book of Exodus and Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a remarkable work of politically charged theatre by a bold new voice in American Theatre, Antoinette Nwandu.
