Leila, a Lebanese-American writer/performer, and her husband Adam, an artist from a Jewish family, have been invited here by Joan, the president of the board (and Adam’s aunt) to present their experiences in Lebanon during the 2006 Israeli-Hezbollah war. But as the evening unfolds in unexpectedly humorous and dangerous ways, the biggest conflict this family must face is the one between them. In the Crossing is an interactive dialogue about the personal in the political, and how their intersection shapes who we are.
Written and Performed by Leila Buck
With Adam Green, Kathryn Kates, and Maya Serhan
Directed and developed by Shana Gold
