Crossing the Line

Cry Havoc - Crossing the Line

Cry Havoc Theater Company will perform a 45-minute reading of their most recent documentary/verbatim theatre piece, Crossing the Line, about the humanitarian crisis at the southern border. Created from first-person interviews collected by the teens in March 2019, Crossing the Line offers a snapshot of the disturbing realities border residents and migrants face against the backdrop of a national debate on immigration. Following the reading, the teen company will hold a Q&A on the creation of the show and a workshop on creating verbatim theatre with teens.
