SEASON 6 - 1999

Passing

February / March 1999

by Sheri Bailey

Towne Street Theater presents its highly praised production of Sheri Bailey's play, itself an adaptation of Nella Larsen's bold Harlem Renaissance novel about two black women in 1920s New York, and their experiences with passing for white. Yet Passing is not just about racial identity; it's about identity, period. The two main characters, Irene and Clare, are estranged childhood friends who reunite after 20 years to discover that they've both been living a lie.
