A theatre adaptation of Peaky Blinders is making its way to Scotland next year.

Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby will hit the road in September this year as part of a UK tour, which includes a five night stint in Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre.

The gangster TV drama – which is going into its sixth and final season – has been adapted for the stage by creator Steven Knight alongside the Rambert dance company.

The musical stage version, which is being choreographed by director Benoit Swan Pouffer, will pick up the story of the Peaky Blinders gang at the end of World War One and will follow Tommy Shelby and Grace Burgess as they go through a love affair.

Helen Shute, CEO and executive producer of Rambert, said: “Rambert has always been committed to making dance that resonates with audiences across the country and we’re incredibly honoured to be trusted by Steven Knight with his nationally beloved Peaky Blinders.

“We look forward to welcoming a new generation of audiences to theatres with a story that speaks to so many people.”

Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby will open at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre from February 28, 2023.
