Edge of Time

In 1965, Hannah Gavron – a bright, sophisticated, young writer and sociologist – gassed herself in Primrose Hill, north London. She left behind a suicide note, two small children, and an about-to-be-published manuscript titled The Captive Wife.

Jeremy Gavron, the youngest of Hannah’s two children, was four years old when Hannah ended her life. As an adult, Jeremy researched the events surrounding his mother’s death, and the resulting book, A Woman on the Edge of Time, pieces together – from letters, diaries, and the memories of old friends – a picture of a brilliant but complex woman, grappling to find an outlet for her intelligence and sexuality in the shifting sands of the 1960s.

The Edge of Time film was inspired by Hannah Gavron’s life and by Jeremy Gavron’s book. The film is dedicated to the memory of Hannah Gavron (19 Aug 1936–14 Dec 1965).

Edge of Time: a one-actor show, inspired by Jeremy’s book.
