Downstage & Chromatic Theatre Present

The Green Line

From the Lebanese Civil War to a queer Beirut nightclub, past and present braid together in The Green Line’s contemplation of how memories are inherited or erased.

 

During the Lebanese Civil War, Naseeb wants his sister to withdraw from her university studies and move to the mountains. But Mona is secretly falling in love with Yara. 40 years later, Rami, a Lebanese Canadian student, comes to Lebanon to bury his father, Naseeb. That night, he meets Zidan, a drag queen at a queer Beirut nightclub and things take an unexpected turn. Past and present braid together in THE GREEN LINE’s contemplation of how memories are inherited or erased.
