About This Show

MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning Tarell Alvin McCraney pens a poignant and poetic new play about the journey of family and faith, trial and tribulation. In a dilapidated house near the ever-shifting source of the Mississippi, Shelah’s family gathers on a stormy night for her birthday—bringing ghosts and secrets of the past with them. As her roof buckles under the weight of the rain, Shelah’s convictions begin to wash away, leaving her to excavate the truths buried below. Directed by the preeminent Tina Landau in her Berkeley Rep debut, the riveting Head of Passes comes to the Bay Area straight from its acclaimed world premiere in Chicago.
