This contemporary song cycle explores the questions four young adults face as they come of age and seek simple truths in a complex world. With wit and charm, the musical vignettes follow them on a journey of confronting emotions, escaping expectation and deciphering complicated relationships.
EDGES is written by US-based Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who won the 2007 Jonathan Larson Award for the show. They also recently received this year’s Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theatre for their new show Dogfight. Rodgers Awards nurture talented composers and playwrights by subsidising productions of their musicals in New York. This year’s jury was chaired by Stephen Sondheim.
“This is a show that addresses universal themes of love, commitment, identity and meaning and we are delighted to be holding the South African premiere at Kalk Bay Theatre with a talented local creative team,” says Simon Cooper, owner of Kalk Bay Theatre.
EDGES has also been selected to appear on the Arena Platform at this year’s National Arts Festival; a new initiative highlighting innovative, original and creatively outstanding work.
EDGES will be performed Wednesday to Saturday at 20:30.
