Matthew Bourne mentioned: “I’ve at all times been attracted by ‘outsider’ tales in my work and Edward Scissorhands is the last word ‘outsider’ story. Its story of how we deal with individuals who we understand as being ‘totally different’ in our communities has by no means been extra well timed, so I’m delighted to be bringing it again after an absence of 9 years to theatres all through the UK.

What I notably love about this modern-day fairy story is that though it does have an vital message to convey, and a bitingly satirical have a look at American society, it is usually essentially the most fantastic enjoyable you possibly can presumably have in a theatre! Add to {that a} touching love story, the magical music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, the spectacular lighting of Howard Harrison, the genius of Lez Brotherston’s witty designs …. plus a mini ballet of dancing topiary folks and you’ve got an unbeatable and distinctive theatrical deal with!

I’m grateful, as ever, for the belief that Tim Burton, Danny Elfman and Caroline Thompson had in New Adventures to grant permission for us to make our model of their now basic story – the one firm on the earth to carry out Edward Scissorhands as a stay theatrical expertise.”
