“It is a place where young people from every walk of life, background and ability come together to use the power of drama, music and dance to have fun, build confidence and develop their creativity.”
WHO: Sarah Lumby, Administrative Assistant
WHAT: “Inclusive theatre group The Theatre Shed will explore end of life and organ donation in a unique and inspiring way. A heart is a lot to hand over – and a lot to take. Kia is about to find out just how big hers is. She needs help. She’s fed up with the world. She’s growing up too fast, but who can help? From One Heart to Another looks at the exciting adventures a child goes on and the lessons we remember from our childhood when we’re really challenged to question how we see life.”
WHERE: theSpaceTriplex – Big (Venue 38)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Yes this is The Theatre Shed’s first time at Ed Fringe, this is a huge achievement for the company who have been building in strength from year to year, through hard work from the young people and their excellent artistic team.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?
I think the biggest thing for The Theatre Shed in the past year has been taking a production on tour, starting at Brighton Fringe, a home performance in Buckinghamshire and then taking on Edinburgh Fringe and also the huge decision to take on such a major topic as organ donation, which has stretched the young people and challenged audiences so far!
Tell us about your show.
The show is written by John Berry, directed by Brighton Fringe Children’s Choice award winner Viv Berry, and designed by CJ Reid.
The Theatre Shed is an exciting, inclusive theatre company based in the heart of Chesham. We were founded in 2005 and previously known as Shed at The Park. Neither ‘mainstream’ nor ‘disability’, our inclusivity offers an inspiring alternative theatre made up of an all-encompassing cross-section of the community. It is a place where young people from every walk of life, background and ability come together to use the power of drama, music and dance to have fun, build confidence and develop their creativity. We believe that theatre should be for everyone who’d like to participate, regardless of personal circumstances or background. There are no auditions, everyone has a part to play, just come along, have some serious fun and make friends at the same time.
From One Heart to Another has been to Brighton Fringe, a run of home performances and finishes the tour at Edinburgh Fringe.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Whilst we are at Edinburgh we will be taking our young people to see a couple of other shows and we were particularly interested in: https://tickets.edfringe.com/whats-on/360-allstars.
