Standing At The Sky’s Edge.

A castle built of streets in the sky.

Poppy wants to escape her old life in London. Joy and Jimmy want to spend the rest of their lives together. Rose and Harry want the new life they’ve been promised.

A love letter to Sheffield and a history of modern Britain told through the stories of one iconic estate, Standing At The Sky’s Edge charts the hopes and dreams of three generations over the course of six tumultuous decades.

Set to the irresistible songs of legendary Sheffield singer-songwriter Richard Hawley, it is a heartfelt exploration of the power of community and what it is we call home.

Winner of Mastercard’s Best New Musical at the Oliver Awards 2023, this new British musical transfers to the West End following sold-out runs at the National Theatre and Sheffield Theatres.

Watch the cast perform ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ at the Olivier Awards 2023.
