    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. Selected as the CUADC Edinburgh Fringe 2022 play. Praise for "Life Before the Line":

    “If I could give this a score above 5 – it is more than well-deserved – I would, but I suppose I’d have to settle on a 5/5 this time. An unmissable performance and a truly spectacular show. I cannot recommend getting a ticket to this enough.” - The Tab ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    “The conversations were so engaging that my eyes were glued to the stage, and the pairing of Lever’s script and Ben Phillips’ minimalistic direction was completely harmonious” - Varsity ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2

    Praise for Fringe Run:

    "Top Tier Fringe material" - Jake Mace, Binge Fringe Magazine, Editor and Chief ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
