PassingSOLO

Stella Adler Theatre

6773 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90028

8:00pm

Towne Street Theatre, L.A.’s premiere African-American Theatre Company, presents a limited engagement of “PassingSOLO,” opening October 8, 2016 at the Stella Adler Theatre. Set in 1920s Harlem, Irene Westover Redfield is drawn to childhood friend Clare Kendry Bellew, who’s suddenly reappeared in her life. Both share a secret. Their birth certificates read “Negro” but both can — and do — pass as white.

Adapted by & Starring Nancy Cheryll Davis, the production is based on Nella Larsen's novella & the award winning, critically acclaimed Towne Street Theatre play "Passing.”

A memory play, “PassingSOLO” explores the conflicting demands of race and friendship ... the slippery line between trust and deception ... always with the danger of discovery. Nancy Cheryll Davis portrays both Irene and Clare, as their renewed friendship exposes the price we pay in a society where freedom is bought with deceit. “PassingSOLO” will be in L.A. for a limited engagement before she takes it to Germany this fall!
