Standing at the Sky’s Edge

Event Date: 15th March – 6th April 2019

Event Venue: The Crucible Theatre

World Première.

Standing at the Sky’s Edge is the epic new musical that takes us into the hearts and homes of the people of Sheffield’s very own Park Hill, from its early days as an urban utopia all the way through to now.

Featuring new and classic songs from Sheffield's Mercury prize nominated Richard Hawley, Standing at the Sky's Edge has been named as one of 'the theatre shows you won't want to miss in 2019' by the BBC and as one of the 'musicals not to miss' by WhatsOnStage.

The singer and songwriter Richard Hawley will explore the history of the giant Park Hill estate that overlooks Sheffield in his first stage musical, to be performed exclusively at the City’s Crucible theatre.

The show, which shares the name of the Sheffield musician’s acclaimed 2012 album Standing at the Sky’s Edge, will feature a mix of old and new songs by Hawley as it spans 50 years in the lives of Park Hill residents.
