“Passing,” the play, is inspired by the true story of Minerva Roulhac who was adopted by a former slave and raised as black. Minerva raised eight children (all college-educated) and lived to be nearly 100 years old; her story confronts issues of race, identity, ethnicity, complexion, class and interracial relationships. “Passing” had a sold-out run Off-Broadway in Manhattan’s theater district. This production stars Detroit’s own Mayowa Reynolds.
