Over the Edge is a theatrical and musical exploration of what we find terrifying. Most of us harbour some fear or phobia. Most of us have been scared by something or someone, or have terrified someone else. Some fears are rational, and some are irrational. This project deliberately set out on a safe and supervised journey into the unknown, encouraging participants to explore the nature of terror, to go beyond the known and familiar - to go ‘over the edge’.

The project was subsequently developed further as Missing Melanie and performed at the Greenwood Theatre in 2006.

Youth Music Theatre UK gratefully acknowledge support for this project from Awards for All Northern Ireland, the Exel Foundation, the Golsoncott Foundation and the Lynn Foundation.
