Like all theatre companies our 2020 looked a little different to how we expected. we were fortunate to receive an Emergency Funding grant from Arts Council England which enabled us to make the live digital Zoom version of our library show Super-Spies in Lockdown which involved a live treasure hunt around the towns of Poole, Torbay and Havant. It was lots of fun and an interesting dive into the world of digital.
We have received another Arts Council grant which is enabling us to continue research and develop our new show which is a collaboration with Theatre Newfoundland. We visited them last summer and we’re continuing to work together online to devise a show about the migration of fisher folk from the South West to the shores of Newfoundland in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
Book Club for Super-Spies is an interactive library adventure show for 5-10 year olds and their families. Please let us know if you are interested in receiving a tour pack for this show and keep an eye out here for tour dates.

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.’
