SEASON 4 - 1997


by Sheri Bailey

Passing, our first commissioned piece. Sponsored in part by a grant from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and written by Sheri Bailey, Passing is set against the roaring 1920's and the Harlem Renaissance. Dealing with the issue of a Black person passing for White, it centers on two beautiful women making explosive choices about sexuality, race and class. Overwhelming response extended a six week run to ten! Passing also won Best Actress and Best Costume awards from the NAACP and was nominated for Best Play, Best Playwright and Best Supporting Actor.
