WhatsOnStage logo

Award-winning theatre company Transport returns with a multimedia sea saga.

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 through weather, time and friendship - exploring the mythical place where the land meets the sea and posing vital questions about our future in a rapidly-changing environment.

The Edge is made by the creative team behind the Offie-nominated 1001 Nights (Unicorn Theatre and Tour) and Elegy, winner of a Royal National Theatre Foundation Playwright’s Award.
