The Ballad of Martha Brown
Angel Exit are excited about taking their popular show from last year back out onto the road this Autumn. The Ballad of Martha Brown is based on the true story of the last woman to be publicly hanged in Dorset for murdering her husband with an axe and blaming it on the horse. Filled with Live music, striking choreography and plenty of dark gallows humour this show is suitable for 12+. See here for more info.
Stage manager Matt Lewellyn Smith and performers Morag Cross, Tamsin Fessey and Lynne Forbes will be joined by Pete Ashmore (Calcraft) and Myles Nicol (John Brown) on this tour. We are very excited about working with such lovely talented performers.
We're delighted to be bringing this Dorset tale back to life and taking it around the UK. We are also running workshops on devising, physical theatre and Brechtian techniques to accompany the show. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.

Everyone will be there
Well nearly everyone...Otto would like to go but he's just too shy.
Then one day a robin flies in through Otto's window and changes his life forever.
A tale of making friends and overcoming our fears filled with festive cheer, fun songs and gorgeous puppetry. This brand new show from Dorset based Angel Exit Theatre promises to delight both young and old.
The show has been commissioned by Lighthouse Poole's Centre for the Arts and was created with support from Marine Theatre Lyme Regis R&D by the Sea and Arts Council England.
Shows run at Lighthouse from 8th - 24th December 2015. Tickets on sale now through Lighthouse.
A non-seasonal version of the show will be available for touring in 2016. Contact us for further information.
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 six 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, resident company of Dorchester Arts and have strong connections to Bridport Arts Centre.
