UK Premiere of musical Edges at Tabard Theatre
Agile Theatrical presents the UK premiere of a new musical Edges, with music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, beginning previews at the Tabard Theatre, in Chiswick, west London, on 30 Jul 2014, officially opening on 31 Jul and continuing its limited engagement through to 30 Aug 2014.
The cast of Edges includes Thomas Henson, Rebecca Jayne-Davies, Christina Modestou, and Luke Street.
The show is directed by Adam Philpott, with choreography by Lewis Butler and musical direction by Edward Court.
Synopsis: 'The collection of songs interweaves the lives of two men and two women, and speak as much of such universal issues as love, loss, commitment, identity, ambition, growth, and connection, as the obsessions of youth. Each song stands as a story in itself: a son rages against his father, a woman lies next to a lover she doesn’t quite love, and all the characters find themselves in front of a computer on a Friday night, desperate not to be alone. Each character and each song is vivid, imaginative and utterly relatable as they explore the full, messy range of this fraught decade.'
