Standing at the Sky’s Edge in London

Welcome to the multi-award winning new musical Standing at the Sky’s Edge. It won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical, and the UK Theatre Award for Best Musical Production, plus the South Bank Sky Arts Award, a series of accolades proving its extraordinary appeal. Richard Hawley also won an Olivier, along with the musical director Tom Deering, for Best Original Score or Orchestration.

The musical transfers to the West End after a series of sold-out runs, and people are calling it the most exciting new British musical for ages.

Standing at the Sky’s Edge theatre tickets take you to a show that originated with an album, the seventh by the respected English musician Richard Hawley. It was released in May 2012 and refers to a real place in the musician’s home city of Sheffield; Skye Edge, a hillside with views across the city centre, a location that used to be notorious for crime-ridden council estates until it was redeveloped in the 2000s. In 2012 the album was nominated for the Mercury Prize, and a few years later it was transformed into an inspiring musical.

Directed by Sheffield Theatres’ Artistic Director Robert Hastie, you’ll love Hawley’s remarkable songs. The book is just as good, described as ‘beautiful, hilarious and gut-wrenching’ and written by Chris Bush. The Set and Costume Designer is Ben Stones and the Choreographer is Lynne Page. The Music Supervisor, Arranger & Orchestrator is Tom Deering and the Lighting Designer is Mark Henderson. The Sound Design is by Bobby Aitken, Wigs, Hair & Make-up Design by Cynthia De La Rosa, and the Casting Director is Stuart Burt CDG. The West End cast is yet to be announced, so keep your eyes open.

Originally on stage at the Sheffield Crucible Theatre in 2019, it completed a successful run at the National Theatre in London during March and it’s due at the Gillian Lynne Theatre from 8th February 2024.

What's the plot of Standing at the Sky’s Edge?

The show tells the story of three families living on the Park Hill council estate. Originally written as a love letter to Sheffield, it reveals the hopes and dreams of three generations over six dramatic decades, exploring the universal themes of love, loss and survival. As such, Standing at the Sky’s Edge showcases the history of modern Britain through the stories of a typical housing estate, delivering a heart-warming exploration of the power of community and the places we call home.

Review: STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE at Gillian Lynne Theatre

by Stuart King | Thursday, February 29 2024, 13:35

Set on the once notorious Park Hill Housing Estate in Sheffield, this wonderful musical production is the very essence of community spirit, requiring a dynamic creative group effort during its development stages to reach fruition. The result is a show which literally shines bright at every performance.
