An Edge Production In Association With The Booth Centre
DATE: Thursday 13th – Saturday 15th December 2018
TIME: 3pm /7.30pm
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.
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…
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.
…The joy and the sense of achievement was so utterly obvious to read on all of their faces.

“The show was funny, clever and provocative throughout. The cheers and claps at the end were not just polite but well earned and infectious”

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