Outside Edge Theatre Company’s Vision

To change the lives of people affected by addiction through theatre and drama. 

OETC is the only theatre company working nationally and internationally producing work focused on substance-misuse. The company was set up in 1998 by Phil Fox, an actor and himself a former addict.

Who We Are

“At The Outside Edge Theatre Company, through drama and music, I have been able to recreate the extreme highs and lows of drug use in a healthy and constructive way, as well as being able to explore many issues. My confidence has grown, as has my self-esteem and this has spilled over into my day-to-day life. I am slowly developing belief in myself and my abilities. Today I can confidently say that The Outside Edge Theatre Company is a very well oiled and central part of my recovery machine.” – Mark, OETC Participant
“The work of Outside Edge changed my life as a man and a theatre artist. It proved to me that people can change and theatre can be a part of that.” – Mark Rylance, OETC Patron
“I have watched the Outside Edge Theatre develop over many years and have seen a good number of production and workshops. I have been repeatedly impressed by their invention and delivery.” – Jimmy Page, OETC Patron
