The Edge's first in-house production, Dreaming Under a Different Moon caps a remarkable year for the company that saw their totally sung- through production Spinach get Arts Council funding to transfer from Manchester's Royal Exchange to the King's Head Theatre, London, where it earned 4 and 5 star rave reviews, and further funding was confirmed from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation.
The Edge, based in a converted Victorian Sunday school building, houses three rehearsal/workshop studios, three smaller writers/music rooms and a 70-seat theatre. A planned cafe? development with indoor and outdoor seating areas will be open fully in early 2013.
