I learnt not to care what people think, accepting that it doesn’t matter in the end!”


Based in a former Red Cross Hospital in Chorlton, South Manchester, The Edge is a little theatre with big aspirations. Launched in 2011 with award-winning actors Julie Hesmondhalgh and Mark Rylance as its patrons, the 70 seat venue is both a receiving and a producing house, with a particular interest in theatre for children, musical theatre and new writing. We also run classes and courses – from sewing to ukulele, acting to tap dancing – as well as long term programmes of work with young people and vulnerable adults.
