Hello. We're Paines Plough. We tour the best new theatre to all four corners of the UK and around the world.

“The most beautiful, shattering play of the year.”
★★★★★ The Sunday Express on LUNGS by Duncan Macmillan

Our Programme 2017 sees eight extraordinary new plays touring the nation and internationally. You’ll find us everywhere from Aberystwyth to Adelaide, in tiny village halls and cavernous concert halls, at music festivals and student unions, online and on TV, and in our pop-up auditorium Roundabout.

"As engaging and devastating a piece of theatre as you're likely to find."
★★★★★ The Independent on SEA WALL by Simon Stephens

Paines Plough was formed in 1974 over a pint of Paines Bitter in The Plough pub. Since then we’ve produced more than 170 new plays by world renowned playwrights like Stephen Jeffreys, Abi Morgan, Sarah Kane, Mark Ravenhill, Dennis Kelly, Mike Bartlett and Kate Tempest. We’ve toured those plays to hundreds of places from Orkney to Off-Broadway.

"I think some theatre just saved my life"
