Written by Sarah Gordon

“I made myself not like you. I picked out all your bad bits, all our bad bits and ran them like a tape trying to make sense of everything. It was the only way I could… Until you came in today. Till you came through the door. And it was like you were just coming back home”

Five years ago Nick and Elena fell in love. Two years ago they fell out of it. They haven’t seen each other since. Until now.

It’s that meet up. The first time seeing the ex since the breakup. Something almost all of us have suffered through, whether or not by choice. Unfolding in real time, Nick and Elena try and work out where they went wrong so that they can both move on with their lives. The only question is whether they will do so together, or separately. After all, every love story deserves a second chance. Doesn’t it? Together they were glorious. Together they were a disaster. It just depends on how you see it.

Tender and funny, The Edit tests the limits of love, forgiveness and self-preservation. After a tour of the South West, this is the London premiere of Sarah Gordon’s debut play.
