2 December @ 7:00 pm - 4 December @ 8:30 pm

£5.50 – £7

 ‘Edges’ by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (‘The Greatest Showman’, ‘Dear Evan Hansen’, ‘La La Land’) introduces us to four young people on the brink of something; something which they are not quite sure of, but once they know, it’s going to change everything… right?

Catapulted into university life, the show follows our characters from the naive silliness of their first year all the way to the overwhelming apprehension of the morning after they graduate. Edges is a humorous, heartwarming, coming-of-age show which takes the all-too-real fears of growing up and puts them on stage, all accompanied by Pasek and Paul’s incredible music. From social media to sexuality crises to the all-encompassing question: who do you want to become?
