THE LINE – TEASER
Set during Van Diemens Land's 1830 military movement known as The Black Line.
The story of THE LINE is centred around a property with a white mistress, a black servant and an unexpected visitor. 

Funny, edgy and volatile, the line pulls no punches in its exploration of the hard but relevant question- 

How do we move forward together when our shared history is so violent?
