Catch the second of three productions in the 2022 Portland Theater Festival!

Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner – talking shit, passing the time, and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and 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 just looking for a way out.

A provocative riff on Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a rare piece of politically charged theater by a bold new American voice.

Founded in 2021 by East Shore Arts and Mayo Street Arts, Portland Theater Festival (PTF) introduces an annual summer season of diverse, inclusive, and exceptional professional theater to the City of Portland. Locally staffed and incubated, PTF offers cutting-edge performances in intimate and found spaces with the aim of promoting a more mindful, more compassionate, and more harmonized community in Maine.
