‘There is something about the edge: the edge of the land and water. Here possibilities abound that don’t exist in the security of the interior.’
Sunand Prasad, Architect

Award-winning theatre company Transport returns with a multi-media sea saga. A woman steps into the English Channel. Five thousand miles away in West Bengal a man is swept up by a great storm surge. Two decades later their children meet on a beach by an English town that’s been abandoned to the sea. She’s training to swim the Channel. He’s a climate change refugee. Set in the near future, ‘The Edge’ takes us on a touching and fantastical journey through weather, time and friendship exploring the mythical place where the land meets the sea, posing vital questions about our future in a rapidly changing environment.
