UK’s only theatre focused on addiction

Celebrating 22 years of cutting edge productions and recovery drama groups

Covid-19 Update (December 2021)

No need to Book In

We will be removing the booking system and reinstating ‘Drop In’ attendance for all registered OETC Service Users. If you are new to OETC you will still need to complete an induction ahead of coming to your first session. Register your interest in our sessions here. 

Blended Sessions

The option to attend on Zoom will still be available for those people who are unable to make it to the physical space. We hope that the measures in place will help give you the confidence to come back to the space as and when you are comfortable to do so. 

Social Distancing 

We kindly request you maintain social distancing whenever possible and consider other participants and staff as you move around the workshop.

Face Coverings 

When travelling to the workshops, you must wear a face covering over your nose and mouth on public transport, unless you are exempt. 

We strongly advise that you wear a face covering in the workshop space unless you are exempt, to protect yourself and others. 


Unfortunately, we will not be offering refreshments during workshop activities, so please do bring your own water and snacks if required.

All these guidelines will be continually reviewed in line with government guidelines and the needs of the Outside Edge community. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask, you can drop us a message on

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

“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
