We are currently working with Lighthouse Poole, The Poole High Street Heritage Action Zone, BCP Council, Poole Museums, Activate, Poole BID and other arts organisations to create SALT, a community play for Poole in July 2023. SALT is written by playwright Stephanie Dale. We have been awarded funding from Arts Council England and we are currently in rehearsals. There are still opportunities to be involved backstage. Please email email@example.com to keep up to date.
We are holding a SALTY FUNdraiser at The Antelope Hotel (where the play starts and finishes!) on Saturday 17th June, and ticket are available from Lighthouse.
This work continues our relationship and connection with Newfoundland following on from our visit to Theatre Newfoundland in 2019 and the “Distance Devising” project we carried out in April 2021. We produced a short film to show some of the results of the R&D.
The Fairy Tale Forest returned this Christmas, to Thorngrove Garden Centre. We are hugely grateful to the Dorset Performing Arts Fund (Dorset Community Foundation) and Dorset County Council for their support in enabling us to work with Employ My Ability at Thorngrove to create a magical experience for all the family which entertained over 1600 people over five days.
In 2021 we were commissioned byActivate to create Gallycrows, a new piece of outdoor interactive theatre performed at Inside Out Dorset. Gallycrows is available for festivals and outdoor events. A tour pack is available.

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 eight 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.’
