“You’re never fully dressed without a smile.”

Meet Lewis. He’s a Redcoat. He’s living the dream and living it large in Bognor Regis. He likes to smile and show you a good time. But what happens when you’re having an ‘off day’? And you tell Barney the dinosaur to p*ss off (in front of a load of kids)?

Join Redcoat Lewis as he sets out to make the world a little bit better through his love of entertaining and showing people a good time. Loosely inspired by Lewis’ real-life experience as a Butlin’s Redcoat in Bognor Regis, Redcoat is a fun, life-affirming show about being happy (and a little bit about being sad).

Expect classic holiday tunes, beach parties, dance routines, balloon modelling, and that extra bit of Redcoat sparkle!

After a sell-out premiere at Live Theatre in Autumn 2021, Redcoat returns for its larger-than-life UK tour. Redcoat is a fun and fabulous 70 minute one-person show created by North East performer Lewis Jobson and theatre company The Six Twenty in association with Live Theatre (Newcastle).

The Guardian's Reader's Choice Performance of the Year in 2021.

Redcoat is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, and has received additional support from the Scottish Government's Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund and Creative Scotland’s Recovery Fund for Cultural Organisations.
