THEM is a fearless and inspiring story of one family on the cusp of becoming refugees as they face the decision to flee their war-torn city. Omar, Leila and their young child are counting down the days. Their idealistic friends enjoy wild fantasies of escape and the arrival of Omar's sister brings a real chance to do so - but will the compromise be worth it?

With moments of unexpected warmth, love, laughter and song, THEM is a fast-paced drama that takes audiences into extraordinary circumstances to unveil a truly relatable humanity in the ordinary moments that shape our lives.

"A drama dappled with humanity and humour amid the horrors of war. The inextinguishable spirit of laughter, of the music of life in the face of desolation, is crucial to both the play's poignancy and appeal." - 4 STARS, Sydney Morning Herald.

Ages: 14+.

Warnings: Moderate language.
