About us

Company Biography

Ridiculusmus has been producing seriously funny theatre for over 20 years.
The company is led by David Woods and Jon Haynes, who write, direct and perform.

Ridiculusmus’ origins are in the shadowlands of theatre and comedy.  We began as a rabble of graduates from the Poor School in London adapting comic novels for the London fringe and have evolved over the last quarter century into a robust double act.  Driving and leading as author-actors, the company’s co-artistic directors David Woods and Jonathan Haynes have established the company as a flagship UK performance group touring nationally and internationally with works passionately wrought from minimal resources, and with an oxymoronic aim: to be both serious and funny.

Independent Futures

‘Independent Futures,’ which encompasses our mentoring scheme and the Associates Programme (see below), is essentially about passing on our experience of twenty-odd years to the next generation of theatre artists, producers and technicians. Although we’ve often been called Maoist in our approach we do actually have a genuine concern for the way the performing arts turn out and will do anything we can do to facilitate the development of other people’s careers and to help them to find their artistic vision. We hope that our open approach to sharing, nurturing and supporting both the next generation and our peers might encourage others to do so in order to temper change and collectively increase innovation, efficiency and sustainability across the independent sector.
