Crossing the Line by Canadian playwright Colleen Craig who moved to South Africa in 1982. This play in two acts is interspersed with comedy and describes the experiences of three women: an activist, an artist and a model. Rich with the atmosphere of an urban Transvaal summer, this work explores contemporary women's experience as sovial, sexual and political beings. Shortlisted for the Verity Bargate Award in London. Published by Playwrights Canada Press, 1989.

The Baxter Theatre presented the première of the play in the Baxter Studio in August 1989, directed by Mavis Taylor, starring Belinda Koning (Hannie), Michelle Maxwell (Ann), Ingrid Emslie Rosie), David Haynes (Mark), Gaynor Young (Paula). Design by Brian Collins, lighting by Craig Dobson.
