The Edge of Our Bodies
The Edge of Our Bodies is a bold and innovative coming of age play, aiming to bring the audience on a poetic journey pushing boundaries "beyond the edge of what we know". 'The Edge of Our Bodies' takes place on the setting for a stage production of Jean Genet's "The Maids," a school play in which Bernadette, a 16 year old Connecticut boarding school student, has been cast as the lead. An aspiring short story writer, Bernadette has returned to school after recently running away to New York, boarding a train on her own carrying her notebook and important news for her boyfriend...
She intimately shares with the audience her writings from these formative few days of her life, narrating a series of encounters she engages in with various characters that shape her journey in explicit, yet articulate detail. Adam Rapp is an American playwright, screenwriter and film director.
