ABOUT

Bournemouth Councillor John Peasley hates Christmas. He also hates anything that doesn’t make a profit, so the opportunity to close the local library on Christmas Eve is one that he can’t turn down. All seems lost until he is visited by the ghost of his old colleague Jack Marlow and by the ghosts of Christmas’s past, present and yet to come. Will they save the library? Will they save his soul?….. and will they save Christmas?

With songs, humour and our own inimitable style of entertainment, we promise to get you in the Christmas spirit (see what we did there?) and have you leaving the theatre with hope and love and not even a trace of humbug!

 

The Edge runs regular drama and singing workshops at The Booth Centre for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Together we have produced a unique company making high quality theatre.

PRESS & REVIEWS

The Edge in Chorlton have built up a huge and deserved reputation for working with people who are, for the want of a better phrase, on the ‘edge’ of society…

“The Edge in Chorlton have built up a huge and deserved reputation for working with people who are, for the want of a better phrase, on the ‘edge’ of society…
To say this show was giving these citizens a meaning and a reason to stay alive perhaps sounds a little melodramatic and exaggerated; but after speaking with some of them after the show, that really was the case. I can only continue my own silent applause now as I type – not just to those who performed the show, but to all those who had the vision and dedication to see this project through and make it work so wonderfully.
– Matthew Dougall, Review Number 9 (They Can’t Take That Away From Me – July 2018)

“This has given people the opportunity to develop and showcase their skills and talents. It is inspirational to watch”

Amanda Croome MBE, CEO of The Booth Centre

“The show was funny, clever and provocative throughout. The cheers and claps at the end were not just polite but well earned and infectious”
Live Art Alive (A Spanish Adventure, July 2017)

“Really moving, really really funny…  really beautiful, finely acted, brilliantly written, and of course the music, as always, just genius from Simon Waters”

Julie Hesmondhalgh (They Can’t Take That Away From Me – July 2018)
