On The Edge
About the Show
On The Edge looks at the lives of three women in today's complicated world, each very different from the others and each caught in a labyrinth created by society's expectations.
The three women - a fashion addict who is cheekily overwhelmed by labels, finances and aging; a police officer who uses her rough and tumble sense of humour to function in a hyper-masculine world; and a housewife learning yoga while trying to find balance between her inner life and the demands of her needy family - each bring deep empathy and great humour to the stage.
On the Edge was first produced by the Belfry Theatre in Victoria, BC in 2012.
