Guillermo Verdecchia and Marcus Youssef’s A Line In The Sand, written in 1995 to examine Canadian involvement in the Gulf War, gets a striking new production at a time when our nation is still engaged in questionable military endeavours. It’s the early 90s in Qatar, and just outside a Western armed forces base, Mercer (Morgan David Jones), a Canadian soldier, meets the teenage Sadiq (Danny Ghantous), a Palestinian whose father has come to this Arab nation to work in the oil industry.

In the autumn of 1990, during Operation Desert Storm, two young men, one a troubled Canadian soldier, the other a teenage Palestinian black-marketeer, meet in the scorched Qatari desert. Breaching the divide of a profound cultural misunderstanding and against a backdrop of massive global conflict, these two become unlikely and secret friends. This tenuous friendship is severed by the torture and murder of the 16-year-old Palestinian inside the Canadian base—an act to which the Canadian soldier was at least a witness and perhaps a willing participant.Weaving poetic drama with myriad documentary sources, A Line in the Sand rips the benevolent mask off recent western peacekeeping operations and challenges Canada’s long treasured national mythology that it is a nation of quiet diplomats. It asks us to imagine how horrors like these could be perpetrated with our money, in our name and by people much like us.Cast of three to five men.
