Based on playwright Gab’s Cody’s true experiences, Inside Passage meshes memories of her early childhood in Alaska with family lore and her quest for reunification 35 years later. An ensemble of six performers play a multitude of characters, exploring Gab’s return to Alaska in search of siblings who may not wish to be found. Innovatively combining live performance and documentary film footage shot both in Pittsburgh and on-location in Alaska, Inside Passage is intimate, heartfelt, and funny.
