Proper Job Theatre Company

Proper Job Theatre Company was established in 1985. The company has a history of profound engagement creating exciting projects using theatre to inspire change.

We are the only company in the UK that uses Meyerhold’s Theatrical Biomechanics. The ensemble of actors is a highly trained group that creates work which is risky and imaginative. Above all, our style is theatrical and what we do is accessible, passionate, and emotionally engages with our audiences.
