out of context theatre was formed during the lockdown in 2020 by stephen davies and jon walker. they needed a creative outlet that combined their passion for creating evocative and immersive theatre.


theatre needs to challenge, question and inspire conversation around difficult and current issues.

stephen and jon met in 2017 whilst performing in Billy Liar in the Whitefield Garrick theatre. they bonded over our exploratory approach to theatre.


it took the pandemic in 2020 to inspire the development of the company’s first play ‘i am george massey’ which will premiere at the Greater Manchester Fringe.
