Cry Havoc Theater’s Crossing the Line Turns the Voices of Immigration Into a Play

As a verbatim play, these interviews are the backbone of the show. The script is based entirely on interview transcriptions. In other words, we are seeing representations of people, not characters, and the actors do well in their seamless transitions from one role to the next. From the composed, yet seemingly apathetic, statement of the ICE official to the hopeful remarks of a 17-year-old migrant at a detention center, the actors are not just describing the crisis at the border–they take you there.
