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.
