'Jarod. Lilly. Deanna. Michael. Ryan. April. Six people who know Josh, an aspiring artist and a troubled young man. When Josh declares that he wishes to end his life, these six are forced to re-examine their relationships: with him, with one another, and with themselves.
'The Edge is a dynamic new musical, originally staged in Malaysia and coming to Perth for the first time. A production that peers over the edge of the human condition and leaps into the complicated nature of relationships, it asks questions about affect, responsibility – and ultimately, forgiveness.'
