Our Aims

We will positively impact the lives of underrepresented and historically silenced groups and individuals, with particular emphasis on benefiting Queer (LGBTQIA+) Artists, Young People and Early Career Artists in the East Midlands. We are committed to working with people that reflect the diversity and intersectionality of the communities we seek to benefit. This includes, but is not limited to; young carers, care experienced young people and adults, people who identify as Deaf, Disabled, and neurodivergent, people of the Global Majority, and Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

  • Platform historically silenced voices and stories through co-creation projects (including plays, workshops, events and programmes) to empower and create space for underrepresented Artists and Theatre Makers.

  • Create new pathways in the arts by producing projects that unlock creative potential and combat isolation for marginalised people.

  • Champion wellbeing at all stages, using creativity and performance to boost confidence, develop communication skills and empower young people to advocate for their needs, points of view and opinions.

  • Provide employment and placement opportunities for early career creatives and young people within the arts; empowering them to take leadership roles and build a community through sharing events, workshops and networking.

  • Informed by a robust wellbeing approach, cultivate cathartic experiences and projects that unite marginalised communities (e.g LGBTQIA+, Young Carers) and voice social and political changes needed in society.

  • All of the above will be achieved through strong partnership working with communities, funders and charities, ensuring that our beneficiaries are able to access high quality and transformative experiences.

Our Mission

We make Theatre and tell stories that are BLUNT, DARING & FUNNY


We create a platform to amplify voices and unheard stories.


We cultivate a welcoming space to explore sensitive topics with an embedded wellbeing approach.


We are passionate about addressing current issues and not shying away from uncomfortable conversations.


We are change-makers.


We are excited by Theatre and its ability to hold a mirror up to society and say:


“ARE YOU LISTENING?” (an actual line from a song in our first production of ‘Think’)



Some of our work is developed through improvisation and written later or vice versa. 


Our shows are packed to the brim with information and often our productions involve fast-paced dialogue and movement. 


Our productions are rhythmic like a song you don’t know the lyrics to yet. 


Our Background

Evangeline 'Evie' Osbon set up Mind Out Theatre in 2017 and we have had the privilege of working with amazing voices to tell new stories and unpick difficult conversations.

Our first production, 'Think' was based on a true story and explored lived experience of mental health. Through devising this production, we realised that with all difficult topics, there is light within the dark. We explore Tragedy and Comedy to embody these experiences truthfully; Dark Comedy is our favourite genre.

As we went on to work with new writers through R&D processes in shows, 'The Ladies Loo Chronicles' and 'Conversations with Ed' we utilised the power of new writing in bringing diverse and unheard stories to life.


The pandemic has presented both society and theatre with a seismic shift in perspective. We had the opportunity to stop and think about our direction and we kept circling back around to the power of unheard stories. We are excited to be exploring new ways of working with community groups and young people.

We registered as a Community Interest Company this year.  We look forward to sharing our aims snd next steps as a company with you soon.
