Paines Plough is run by a small team of dedicated and passionate people, but it is sustained by its audiences and supporters. We rely on the generosity of individuals to ensure we can maintain the company’s unrivalled record of producing the best new plays on tour nationwide. 

We're truly grateful to all our supporters, and we'd love you to join them.

Anything you can give - no matter how small - will help us get closer to achieving our ambition of touring the best new plays to more towns and cities across the UK than ever before.

Donate to the COME TO WHERE I AM project

COME TO WHERE I AM is a digital project conceived by Paines Plough in response to the closure of theatres during COVID-19. It is a spin-off of our flagship project COME TO WHERE I’M FROM.

In partnership with theatres across the UK, we have already commissioned 61 new short plays from writers about the places they call home and their relationship to home at this time. 

All donations made to this project will go directly towards employing writers to deliver more excellent new writing during the current COVID-19 outbreak. We need your support.

Please donate to COME TO WHERE I AM here.


Donate via your mobile phone

You can even donate via your mobile phone. Simply text PPPP00 followed by the amount you wish to donate to 70070.

e.g. PPPP00 £10

Thanks to Justgiving and Vodafone, Paines Plough will receive 100% of your donation, which will be added to your mobile phone bill.

Name a seat in Roundabout

Roundabout is our beautiful portable in-the-round theatre: a completely self-contained auditorium that can pop-up anywhere from warehouses to car parks to fields.

We’ve created Roundabout because we’re passionate about new plays and we want as many people as possible to be able to see them. Roundabout will travel the length and breadth of the UK bringing the nation’s best playwrights and a thrilling theatrical experience to people’s doorsteps.

We need all the help we can get to make that dream a reality, and that’s where you come in.

You can help keep Roundabout on the road by naming a seat via our JustGiving page.

To Name a Seat we are suggesting a donation of £500 but we are very grateful for any amount you are able to donate.

Every penny will help keep Roundabout on the road.


Our Supporters
