We’re so delighted to announce that we were successful in our application to Arts Council England for a COVID-19 emergency response grant. This funding will enable the company to pay our essential overheads for the next six months and keep Angel Exit afloat for a bit longer. We have no idea when we’ll next be able to make a show or tour and all of our plans we had in place for the foreseeable future have dispersed, but this grant has given us a little bit of hope and we are incredibly grateful. With no other income or work on the horizon we are so thankful to the Arts Council for this support. Look out soon for some fun Book Club for Super-Spies online content to enjoy at home with your family.
As soon as government guidelines change and it’s safe to start performing again, we have our two shows toooB and Book Club for Super-Spies ready to tour. Tour packs are available for both so let us know if you’re interested in programming.
If you’d like to support the company moving forwards we’d be incredibly appreciative; you can get in touch here: email@example.com.
toooB is our brand new show for under 3s and their grown ups. It was developed with Lighthouse Poole and premiered there before going on to do a short tour. The show is designed by Verity Quinn, composed by Tom Ball with Lighting design by Dan Saggars and the company was mentored by Sarah Argent. It is co-direccted by Lynne Forbes and Tamsin Fessey.
Book Club for Super Spies

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.’
