Lily feels trapped. When a conflict between her best friend Brit and the guy she likes Karim breaks out after other students share racist, anti-Muslim memes, a misunderstanding leads to a school lockdown. Lily finds herself right in the middle, forced to make hard choices about which friend’s truth she’s going to believe.

Illustrating the real-life challenges of immigration, income inequality, and fears of violence in our schools, The In-Between is a realistic, relatable exploration of the complex social circumstances students must navigate in today’s world.

Written by award-winning playwright Marcus Youssef - writer of the international Geordie hit Jabber, seen by tens of thousands of young people across North America and Europe - The In-Between tackles hard questions with humour, sensitivity and a deft ear for how young people negotiate the adult-size problems they encounter as they enter their later teens.

Each performance of The In-Between will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A with our 2Play Tour cast and a representative from the Centre for the Prevention of Radicalization Leading to Violence

    Theatre means everything to me. I’ve been watching Geordie plays since before I can remember. They have shaped my sense of storytelling, of imagination. As in The In-Between, where a few simple benches and screens become a cafeteria, a bedroom, a forest. There are stories that only theatre can tell.

    I got to watch as Mike directed the actors through emotions that are so common in teenagers, love and hate and angst, careful to create something that would be relatable to kids my age, that wouldn’t make us feel stereotyped or misunderstood.
