Towne Street Theatre presents
Starring Nancy Cheryll Davis
Written by Nancy Cheryll Davis
Directed by Nancy Renee
Adapted from the Towne Street Theatre play Passing, and Nella Larsen’s 1927 novella Passing.
1920s Harlem. Like a moth to a flame, Irene Westover Redfield is drawn to childhood friend Clare Kendry Bellew, who has suddenly reappeared in her life. Both share a secret. Their birth certificates read “Negro” but both can — and do — pass as white.
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.
