Brink is a collaboration between writer Jackie Kay and the Royal Exchange’s young company – a group of performers, writers, designers and communicators aged 14-21. The title is translated as ‘when the edge is close and you’re close to the edge,’ an apt theme for a young theatre group on the brink of adulthood. 425 more words
