UK’s only theatre focused on addiction

Celebrating twenty years of cutting edge productions and recovery drama groups

Covid-19 Update (October 2020)

The intermission is over and we have lifted the curtain on our new blended service delivery and from this month you will be able to join some of our workshops online or in-person. The choice is yours!

For now, we will only be offering a blended delivery for the following groups listed below:

From 14th October – Write Now and West London Drop-in Drama (Wednesdays)
From 15th October – Women’s Drama Group (Thursdays)
From 19th October – Edge Two (Mondays)

To keep you as safe as possible our workshops will look and feel a little bit different, find out what to expect here!

All other groups will continue to operate online. Take a look at the monthly schedule of free activities and join us through a video link or telephone call to spark your creativity and connect with the group. We look forward to welcoming you back!

If you have not been to an OETC workshop before please register your interest here.

If you are an existing OETC participant and have not received information about how to access these activities, please get in touch at or call 0207 371 8020 for more information.

We have also compiled a list of free creative and recovery maintenance resources from other organisations available as a response to Covid-19.

“Outside Edge produces artistically excellent work that challenges and entertains audiences at the same time as making a real difference. Edge’s work with addicts – and the ways in which their performances awaken audiences and provoke debate – is quite simply stunning.” – Jimmy Page, OETC Patron
