Events: Moonfleet on Tour

Formed in 2001 by graduates of the prestigious Ecole Lecoq, Angel Exit Theatre is a shifting ensemble of performers with a shared passion for new dynamic physical theatre, under the artistic direction of Tamsin Fessey and Lynne Forbes.

To date Angel Exit have devised, produced and performed four original pieces of theatre, all critically acclaimed. They have very different stories, but what the shows have in common is a strong emphasis on storytelling through physical ensemble theatre, using the European traditions of clown, chorus, melodrama and buffoonery.

Come and see this re-telling of John Meade Falkner's classic 'Moonfleet' smuggling novel, conjured by a group of buffoons washed up onto the wild shores of Chesil beach. With live and recorded music, puppets and striking physicality, come and see why the critics are saying:

"One of the most remarkable performances of the year came to Dorchester...The Corn Exchange was packed with the attention of more than 200 spellbound adults and children totally immersed in this outstanding production" - Anita Harries, A View from Dorchester

Four of our performances have sold out already so make sure you get your tickets soon. Please stop and say hello if you make it, we'd love to see you! We're in Croydon, St Albans, Portsmouth, Bath and Poole to name a few.
