Rambert’s thrilling stage adaptation “The Redemption of Thomas Shelby” captures the Peaky story, with stunning performances from Rambert’s dancers and an iconic soundtrack from a live on-stage band.
Opening in the trenches of Flanders, a personal story unfolds in post-war industrial Birmingham as the Shelby family navigates the decisions that determine their fate and Tommy is intoxicated by mysterious newcomer Grace.
While Tommy is building his empire, Grace is operating as an undercover agent for Special Branch on a mission to get close to the heart of Tommy’s gang. As the story unfolds, hearts are broken, and revenge is sought.
Spectacular dramatization and breath-taking dance is heightened by a live on-stage band performing specially commissioned music by Roman GianArthur and iconic Peaky tracks from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Radiohead, Anna Calvi, The Last Shadow Puppets, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Throughout Rambert’s packed-out UK theatre tour, long-time fans of the TV show and audiences coming fresh to Peaky were united in their enthusiasm for this adaptation written by the series creator Steven Knight, with direction and choreography by Rambert’s Artistic Director Benoit Swan Pouffer.
“Vigorous and vibrant performances from the entire cast.”The Times

“Peaky Blinders has always had music and movement at its heart, and now the beating heart of the show will be transferred to the stage, an interpretation of Tommy’s story performed by Rambert, one of the leading dance companies in the world.”Steven Knight (Creator and Writer of Peaky Blinders)
