"Allow it" is a stand-up comedy about Western Philosophy and Islam in modern Britain told through the stories of teaching religious studies to teenagers in East London. What do you say when your students get married before you do? What does Wittgenstein have to do with ice cream? Are you a snake or a proper pagan? Allow it is East London youth slang for "let it be" but just how easy is it do that?
