About Edie

Mum is the centre of Edie’s universe. They’ve stuck together through thick and thin, as other family members abandoned them one by one. But after a terrible accident, Edie has to learn to function as an independent adult in a world that she severely dislikes. Edie tells the story of a 29-year-old (probably) neurodivergent woman, who is torn between adoration for her controlling Mum and the urge to escape their shared home. The play explores dysfunctional families, the absurdities of adulting, and the experience of living in a society that will never adjust to you. It’s also a play that asks, who do you blame and what does that say about you? Edie was longlisted for Theatre503’s International Playwriting Award in 2020 and shortlisted for Through the Mill Playwriting Prize in 2021. Players Theatre Company is a Female and Non-Binary led Theatre company, championing works by and for women and non-binary audiences. Divergent Talent Group is a neurodiverse production company, access consultancy and the UK’s first talent management company exclusively representing neurodivergent talent. Age Recommendation: 16+
