Description

Playwright Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu joins CBS News' Jericka Duncan to discuss the latest incarnation of her play - "Pass Over." Nwandu explains how she changed the play's ending to better reflect current circumstances and her own evolution. She says she found inspiration for "Pass Over" from the Bible's Exodus story, Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" and teaching college students. As the first play to open on Broadway since the COVID-19 shutdown, Nwandu explains the precautions the company has taken to ensure everyone's physical and mental health.
