About the Show Less...

Matthew Bourne reinvents Tim Burton's film in his own inimitable style. Read More >

Edward Scissorhands tells the story of an ingenious inventor who dies before completing his most extraordinary creation: a real life working boy. The unfortunate child in question is thus left in distinctly impractical state of having devilishly sharp scissors for hands. Set adrift in an odd suburban world, Edward is faced with rejection and abuse, although he also finds love in the form of a fellow misfit.

Matthew Bourne, the choreographer behind the revolutionary Swan Lake, Nutcracker and Highland Fling, reinvents Tim Burton’s film in his own inimitable style.
