A Woman On The Edge

Scaled p1030332 edit

Claire Dawson redefines the one-woman musical in this multimedia tour-de-force!
As if careering towards middle age from the wrong direction weren’t enough, how did she also end up in Tasmania with a gun in her hand and a dead husband at her feet? To find the answer, our slightly shop-soiled heroine sings up a storm as she stampedes her way through a spirited journey of self-discovery.


Along the way, she plays her own backing group and a host of other characters via continuous video backgrounds.
A funny and moving script by Rod Anderson explores being that person on the outside of life looking in and includes songs by Claire as well as some great diva classics. The whole show provides an ideal vehicle for this multi-talented performer to display her remarkable voice, comedic talent, warmth, and insight.


Critics say, "A laugh out loud show delivered with wit, great musicality and a hugely generous performance from Dawson."
Finding yourself has never been funnier or more uplifting!

Presented by:
Anderson Dawson Producers

Anderson Dawson Producers exist to promote the Productions and Services created through the combined Artistry of Claire Dawson, actor/singer/song writer and Rod Anderson, writer/director.
Recent shows have included Blitz! the one woman musical that traces the experiences of an English singer up to and through WW2 and A Woman On The Edge, a music theatre piece telling the tale of an innocent from Liverpool who has to go all the way to Australia to find herself. Both shows have toured Tasmania and A Woman On the Edge started by selling out the Spiegeltent in 2015 and has just completed a highly successful season at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016.
Critics said, "In Blitz, a one-woman and one-accompanist show with heart and energy, dynamic Claire Dawson dazzles – singing, dancing and interpreting the music of the 20s, 30s and 40s." And about A Woman On The Edge, "This is a laugh out loud show delivered with wit, great musicality and a hugely generous performance from Dawson."
