Line is the longest-running Off-Off Broadway show on the boards, having played continuously at the Thirteenth Street Repertory Theatre since 1974. One by one a group of unacquainted people come together to form a line for an unnamed, upcoming event. Gradually, the struggle for first place begins, and as they lie, cheat, wrestle and push to gain the lead spot. An extraordinary panorama of human frailty is made explosively and hilariously real. As, in the end, are the deviousness, the competitiveness, and the pettiness of the small, wasting battles with which we litter our lives.
