Ron is leaving home. After a night on the town with his friends, he is on his way home for a last meal with his mother before his flight abroad.
But in his path lies a homeless man, sleeping in the street. Ron tries to help him, but somehow ends up in his debt – or so believes the homeless man. He follows Ron home to exact what he believes is owed to him, even at the expense of Ron's last night with his mother Sal before leaving home forever.
The Edge was first produced by Big Brum Theatre in Education Company, 15 October 2012, in a production directed by Chris Cooper.
