Matthew Bourne stated: “I’ve all the time 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 ‘completely 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 significantly love about this modern-day fairy story is that though it does have an vital message to convey, and a bitingly satirical take a look at American society, it’s also probably the most fantastic enjoyable you can probably 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 planet to carry out Edward Scissorhands as a dwell theatrical expertise.”
