About the show

The multi-award winning new musical STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE – winner of the 2023 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, UK Theatre Award for Best Musical Production and the South Bank Sky Arts Award – is now playing until 3 August at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.

Hailed as ‘the best British musical in decades’ (Daily Express), STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE is a kaleidoscopic portrait of life on an ever-changing estate, charting the highs and lows and loves and losses of three generations over six tumultuous decades.

Set to the irresistible songs of legendary singer-songwriter Richard Hawley, with a beautiful, hilarious and gut-wrenching book by Chris Bush, this ‘deeply moving and monumental musical’ (Daily Telegraph) reveals the history of modern Britain through the stories of the landmark Park Hill estate, in a heartfelt exploration of the power of community and what it is we all call home.

Don’t miss your chance to experience this ‘epic musical for the ages’ (Broadway World) – must end 3 August.
