Since its debut in 2005, Matthew Bourne’s enchanting dance rendition of Edward Scissorhands has captivated audiences globally. Now the sensation takes to the stage of Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre.

Created by an eccentric inventor, Edward lives a quirt life. When his creator dies, Edward is left incomplete, with scissors for hands. A kind woman from the town invites him to live with her family. As Edward tries to find his place among them, will they look past his strange appearance and see the gentle soul within?

An audio description performance takes place as a matinee show on 18 May 2024. A downloadable visual guide which contains information and pictures to help prepare for a visit to the venue and performance is also available.

Festival Theatre Edinburgh is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the east end of Princes Street. If travelling by public transport, Lothian Buses services 7, 14, 30, 31, 37 and 49 all run regular services to the area.

Further details, availability and tickets can be found on Edward Scissorhands.
