Sir Mark Rylance talks about the importance of the work of The Edge, while on set filming for Steven Spielberg’s The BFG.

“The Edge Theatre hunts out people. People who are lonely, people who are poor, people with mental illness, young people…lots of different people in the community who don’t have access to stories and the arts and enables them to take part…the particular way the theatre tells stories, the emotional nature of it and the involvement in other people’s stories (either as an actor or writer or member of the audience), it’s a crucial part of our health.”
