This is a theatre company working on the Ragged Edge...
Making entertaining and engaging shows which take a fresh look at current issues and ideas.
...of the economy
Celebrating the power and creativity of theatre with quality shows at a time when funding for the arts is scarce.
Taking theatre to places on the edge of arts provision, in our countryside, towns and cities.
Ragged Edge develops new work with originality, quality and contemporary relevance.
In its work Ragged Edge recognises that the local delivery of live performing arts is really important in maintaining the quality of life in a thriving rural community:
- It provides access to the arts for those that may not have the means to travel (particularly important in economically challenging times).
- The work can aim to be relevant to and appealing to rural communities and their culture.
- Live performances can be valuable opportunities for communities to come together and share experiences – which maintains and builds strong community relations and combats rural isolation.
- Live performances can encourage tourists to the rural community thereby supporting existing local business in building and developing a destination economy.
