Formed 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 nine 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.

“Angel Exit... is weaving stories with more than a little theatrical magic... There is so much vivid theatricality and inventiveness at work here.

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The company was previously based in Dublin, but is now based in Dorset, South West England. They are associate artists of Lighthouse Poole’s Centre for the Arts and have strong connections to Dorchester Arts and Bridport Arts Centre.
