Inspired by Waiting for Godot and the Exodus, Pass Over is set to star Paapa Essiedu (Moses), are Alexander Eliot (Mister/Ossifer) and Gershwyn
Eustache Jnr (Kitch).

The play combines poetry, humour and humanity which exposes the experiences of young men in a world that refuses to see them.

A lamppost. A street corner. But also a plantation. But also a city built from slaves.

Moses and Kitch wake every morning. Stuck. Hoping to escape. Hoping to move on. Hoping for a promised land. Hoping to pass over.

The production is set to feature designs by Robert Jones, lighting design by Oliver Fenwick, sound design by Ben & Max Ringham, movement direction by Lanre Malaolu and voice and dialect coaching by Hazel Holder.
