ABOUT THE SHOW
The Green Line explores intergenerational memory through the lens of four queer relationships in Lebanon. Two women fall in love under the tumult of war while two men meet for the first time in the hidden recesses of the queer night life. At its heart, The Green Line is a contemplation of the way memories are inherited or erased from our lineages.
