A contemporary song-cycle about young adults at the metaphorical edge of their lives. Edges is a song cycle about four burgeoning adults asking classic coming-of-age questions. Written by TONY nominated Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, James And The Giant Peach) in their sophomore year at the University of Michigan, this charming, witty and honest examination of adulthood explores what happens when we are teetering on the edges of our lives.
The songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity, and meaning. Characters deal with confronting emotions, escaping expectations, and deciphering complicated relationships.
While the show is written for four performers, Edges can be expanded to include multiple men and women playing a variety of age-appropriate roles. Edges provides fertile ground for experimental productions, making it a favorite among college and university theatre programs seeking to challenge their performers with thoughtful material.
