Hall's musical, currently in development, was prompted by his experiences around suicide. He said: "In 2020 I wrote and finished my first musical ‘On The Edge'. It was inspired by my best friend who, in January of that year, wrote a suicide note. He luckily confided in me and others before it was too late, but the thought of losing him affected me greatly, and hugely inspired me to write about his experience."
