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 – Youssef 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 talkback with our 2Play Tour cast and a representative from le Centre de Prévention de la Radicalisation Menant à la Violence.
