GATE Theatre — Edge of our Bodies

Bernadette is 16. She is pregnant. Her boyfriend doesn’t know.

Much more importantly than all that, however, she will soon be auditioning for her high school’s production of Genet’s The Maids. As she stands on the cusp of adulthood, she must learn to untangle the real world outside from the thorns of her imagination.

Adam Rapp’s haunting and mysterious coming of age story will receive its first major UK staging, directed by Gate Artistic Director Christopher Haydon.
