Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby is at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from 12 October to 6 November. Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby tickets are on sale now.
Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby explores the lives of characters in Peaky Blinders. In particular, audiences meet Thomas Shelby, the Peaky Blinders leader. Through dance theatre, audiences travel from Flanders trenches in World War One, through to the criminal underworld of post-war Birmingham, and the love affair between Thomas and undercover agent, Grace.
From serving in the Flanders trenches in World War One to finding himself in the criminal underworld of post-war Birmingham, he then meets Grace, a stranger who he eventually marries.
The Peaky Blinders dance production is a collaboration between dance company Rambert and Peaky Blinders. Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby features a story of Peaky Blinders television creator, Steven Knight, and direction and choreography by Rambert's artistic director Benoit Swan Pouffer. The show features a cast of 20 and a live band playing specially commissioned music.
