“Crossing the Line,” a Cry Havoc Theater Company play set at the Texas-Mexican border, is more relevant now than ever

William Shakespeare has no place here. Nor do Gilbert and Sullivan. 

“Crossing the Line,” a co-production from Cry Havoc Theater Company and Kitchen Dog Theater in Dallas, doesn’t need an imaginary world to make a point—it has enough material with the real one. Taking place at the Texas-Mexico border, the play examines the immigration policy debate that exploded after accounts of intolerable conditions were reported. It shows what it really means when the world is the stage and the people in it mere players.
