“It is as if we find ourselves at the beginning of time…”

It’s 1789. Ideas of revolution and democracy are in the air. In the South Pacific, Fletcher Christian overthrows his captain in the famous mutiny on The Bounty. With salty humour and growing horror, Richard Bean charts the colony’s bloody descent from a new Eden to a dystopia.

Out of Joint collaborated with Chichester Festival Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe for Pitcairn.


“Lucid. Haunting. Savagely comic. I can’t stop thinking about it”
-The Independent

“A rip-roaring tale, rich in metaphorical resonance” 
-Daily Telegraph

“Ingenious. A pleasure to watch. The cast is highly impressive.”
-The Guardian

“Exciting. Bean dares to tackle big themes with thought-provoking fizz”
-The Observer

“A marvellous new play. Spectacular. Bean’s final twist is a delight”
