The Wardrobe Ensemble and Worklight Theatre come together to present a reimagining of the sad but beautiful Hans Christian Anderson tale, The Steadfast Tin Soldier. The one-legged Tin Soldier braves all sorts of adventures to return to his true love - the Paper Ballerina.

The Wardrobe Ensemble and Worklight Theatre are two highly acclaimed emerging companies from Bristol and Exeter. They have both enjoyed success separately with their shows Riot and How to Start a Riot in Edinburgh, the UK and the US, and now come together to share their creative passions and skills to create a new style, something completely fresh and original, just for the Bikeshed Theatre in Exeter.

This project will be a work in progress performance, followed by an open discussion with both companies on their work and process. It is part of the Bikeshed Theatre’s residency programme, where the artists have full access to the space during the days to rehearse, before performing their work to audiences.
