On a castle high on a hill lives Edward; a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When his creator dies, he is left alone and unfinished with only scissors for hands until a kindly townswoman invites him to live with her suburban family. Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?
Devised, directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne, Edward Scissorhands is based on the Tim Burton film and features the music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies. The creative team behind the production also includes set and costumes designed by Lez Brotherston, lighting designed by Howard Harrison and sound designed by Paul Groothuis.
