Antoinette Nwandu

Antoinette Nwandu is a New York–based playwright via Los Angeles. In June, the Steppenwolf production of her play Pass Over, a mashup of the biblical Exodus story and Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, sparked a national conversation about bias in the theater community. Victory Gardens will produce her play Breach: a manifesto on race in america through the eyes of a black girl recovering from self-hate in February 2018. Antoinette is under commission from Echo Theater Company in Los Angeles and Colt Coeur.
