Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the hauntingly beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, Bourne and his New Adventures Company return to this witty, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world.

Edward Scissorhands

In 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.

Enchanting. The perfect treat for all the family
- The Times
Stunning! The wonders keep coming in Bourne’s magical version of the Tim Burton classic
- The Observer
Full of wit and invention. A joyful theatre experience
- WhatsOnStage
Straight from the heart. A stunning finale that knocks you sideways
- The Metro

Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?
