Out of Joint


Out of Joint make epic, authentic and inquisitive theatre. One of our longest established visiting companies, they have brought bold revivals and sharp new writing to both of our theatres since Everyman & Playhouse was established in 2003.

Gemma Bodinetz, our Artistic Director, says: "Out of Joint are renowned for developing hard-hitting new plays and reviving resonant 20th Century classics many of which were first directed by their legendary Artistic Director Max Stafford–Clark."
