About the Book

A lamppost. Night. Two friends are passing time. Stuck. Waiting for change.

Inspired by Waiting for Godot and the Exodus, Antoinette Nwandu fuses poetry, humour and humanity in a rare and politically charged new play which exposes the experiences of young men in a world that refuses to see them.

Pass Over by Antoinette Nwandu received its UK premiere at the Kiln Theatre, London, in February 2020.

“Powerful scarcely begins to describe the impact of this play by Antoinette Nwandu. It has a devastating force and a poeticism that dazzles.”
- The Times
“A shattering study of racism's dream-stealing power . . . Nwandu deftly shows how language carries connotations of sinister legacies.”
- Evening Standard
