Dauntless, political, joyous: Out of Joint develops, produces and tours political, humane and socially engaged shows of outstanding quality, that spark and enrich conversations at kitchen tables around the UK.

Passionate about playwrights, we believe that artists should be at the frontier of new ideas, and invest substantially in the development of writers, directors, actors and audiences to ensure that new plays are thriving, presenting them alongside timely revivals and adaptations that offer an exciting lens through which to view the world.
