Off-Broadway theater company casting in Detroit for a local actress with a strong theater background. ‘Passing’ debuted Off-Broadway in NYC and was recently nominated for an AUDELCO Award (a New York organization that recognizes excellence in theater.)

‘Passing’ is a one-woman play inspired by the true story of Minerva Roulhac (she looked Caucasian but her true ethnicity was unknown) who was adopted by a former slave and raised as black. Her brother, Jordon ran away and decided to pass for white. Minerva raised eight children (all college-educated) and lived to be nearly 100 ears old. ‘Passing’ confronts issues of race identity, ethnicity, class, complexion and interracial relationships. It teaches us to look beyond color and understand the human connection we all share.
