    Jewish teenagers Esty, Allister, Danny and Sara are sitting in a revision session about to take their GCSEs when the terrorist alarm rings. And this time it might not be a drill. Trapped in their RS classroom they have all the time in the world to think. Flipping back and forth between their different perspectives, in the past and present day, they must decide, if they come out the other end, what they will do differently, what risks they will take and most importantly what lines they are willing to cross. Set in Manchester 2016 during the rise in antisemitism, Life Before the Line is a deep insight into what it means to grow up during politically charged times.

    We are looking for a talented and passionate CAST!!! There are is a variety of roles varying in level of commitment - with four lead roles and five ensemble members. Note: This play explores ideas around religion and Jewish identity. While the Jewish faith school is the main setting of the play, its focus is also on culture and growing up within a minority community rather than religion specifically. Auditions are open to anyone regardless of minority background or religion, so please do not let that discourage you!! This is a unique opportunity to create more BME representation on the Cambridge Theatre and we actively encourage all interested Jewish/Middle Eastern students to audition for this regardless of previous theatre experience. Please see our audition pack for more details :))
