About The Play 

In the fifties, on an island colonized by the British, an English couple kidnap a child indigenous to the island. On National Sorry Day the child, now a visual artist, has been asked to participate in the proceedings where “both sides” peaceably reconcile. PASSING is a confrontation with a brutally violent history which resists erasure.


About Bard at the Gate  

Bard at the Gate, founded by Paula Vogel and co-curated by Paula Vogel and Nicole A. Watson, directly responds to the lack of representation of diverse voices within the American theatrical canon. This uniquely curated virtual reading series is designed to become a widely accessible platform for powerful, overlooked plays by BIPOC, women, LGBTQ, and disabled artists.


Join us for a watch party!

McCarter brings its virtual play series of Paula Vogel’s Bard at the Gate plays for 2021-2022 to the Princeton Public Library’s Community Room for in-person community “watch-party screenings.
