directed by Melissa Crespo

When a relaxing afternoon walk turns into a wacky international crisis, lovebirds Arthur and Olivia have no choice but to play by the absurd rules. The two must closely rely on each other to escape the consequences of a ridiculous new policy, but a comically by-the-book government official may push them to the brink of breaking up. Crossing the Line is a hilarious play about the physical and emotional lines we draw and how they divide and define us.

"Both a clever shot at the bureaucratic chains of command that plague our lives, and a genuinely funny piece of writing." - Time Out

"Melissa Crespo directs with energetic attention: this talky, one-location play could have felt static—but Crespo keeps things lively with bits of business between characters....Crossing the Line is a clever little comedy with a surprising jolt of relevance at the heart of its absurdity." -- Theater Jones (Review)

"If Franz Kafka wrote a romantic comedy, it might look something like the disturbingly relevant Crossing the Line at Amphibian Stage Productions....Under the clever and pointed direction of Melissa Crespo, pragmatic exchanges escalate to absurdity. " --The Dallas Morning News (Review)
