Peaky Blinders, which began life on screen, was reimagined for stage in Rambert’s dance performance. And now in this film iteration, it has found its way back onto BBC television and iPlayer and into cinemas, adding new fans and followers.

Watch on iPlayer now. Also coming soon to Rambert Plus for a strictly limited 3 week run before a limited Everyman cinema release [join for free here to be the first to hear].

Opening in the trenches of the Somme, a personal story unfolds in post-war industrial Birmingham as the Shelby family navigate 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.


“It’s something for the screen that goes to the stage, and now is going to the BBC. I was really pleased it felt so natural to rebound. I think someone watching the screen version will get a different but equal experience because it’s done so well.” Steven Knight
