Edward Scissorhands - 2005 - West End

Based on the film by Caroline Thompson

A dance piece. The story of a young man created by an inventor who dies before finishing his work — leaving the man with scissors instead of hands. When a determined Avon lady discovers him in his castle, she attempts to bring him into her home. Before long, the community becomes involved and Edward's hands become more trouble than they are cut out for.
