    When inner city teenagers Tia and Kai find themselves living it up in their rich schoolmate’s mansion, they think their day can’t get any better. Until a priceless fishing fly vanishes, leading to home truths being revealed and life-long friendships stretched to breaking point.

    Gritty, gripping and witty, On The Line is a coming of age play for today exploring issues of cultural identity and barriers to social mobility, exposing the challenges faced by young people growing up in the current tough political environment.

    Emilia Teglia has developed the play from an original idea by Cheyanne Thomson and Emily Johnston and their friends from Camden’s Action Youth Boxing Intervention. The story is based on their experiences. The soundtrack, with tunes by their favourite Drill and pop artists, underscores their humour, bitterness and complexities.
