About Edward Scissorhands
Following it's sell out success in 2005, Matthew Bourne and New Adventures are back with their latest creation – a magical adaptation of the classic Tim Burton motion picture – EDWARD SCISSORHANDS.
A Christmas treat for all the family, this touching and witty gothic fairytale tells the story of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward must find his place in a strange new suburban world where the well meaning community struggle to see past his strange appearance to the innocence and gentleness within.
After global success with his inspired interpretations of Swan Lake, Nutcracker, Highland Fling and the multi-award winning Play Without Words, Matthew has recently choreographed the hit musical, Mary Poppins. A five time Olivier award winner, he is also the creator of the world’s longest running ballet production and is the only British director to have won the Tony Award for Best Director and Best Choreographer of a Musical (1999 for Swan Lake). Now he presents his exciting new interpretation of EDWARD SCISSORHANDS.
