Award-winning theatre company Transport come to Tobacco Factory Theatres for the first time, with a sea saga for the 21st Century.
A woman steps into the English Channel. Five thousand miles away in West Bengal a man is swept up by a great storm surge. Two decades later their children meet on a beach by an English town that’s been abandoned to the sea. She’s training to swim the Channel. He’s a climate change refugee.
Set in the near future, The Edge takes us on a touching and fantastical journey through weather, time and friendship exploring the mythical place where the land meets the sea, posing vital questions about our future in a rapidly changing environment.
The Edge was made by the creative team behind the Off West End Award-nominated 1001 Nights (Unicorn Theatre and Tour) and winner of a Royal National Theatre Foundation Playwright’s Award – Elegy. The Edge brings together text, movement, projection and original music in a production which is poetic, funny, magical, moving and human.
