Esty, Danny, Sara and Allister are in their RS class having their usual debates with Rabbi Fine when the terrorist alarm rings. And it is not a drill. Despite being scared they also have a short amount of time where they can do nothing but think. Flipping back and forth between their perspectives they must decide, if they come out the other end, what they will do differently, what risks will they take and most importantly what lines will they cross.

Life Before the Line explores the trials and tribulations of growing up: from first love to finding independence and what it means to reconcile living in a modern Britain while being a part of one of the oldest religious communities in the world.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 12+
