“Be wary not to visit him, the MANIAC within.”


‘I was sold from the first breath.’ Something in Sam’s mind starts to speak. Powerful and physically dynamic - Project Lockout personifies the darkest corner of our mind.

Founder and Artistic Director of Project Lockout, Michael Lynch (Frantic Assembly Ignition Graduate 2015 and East 15 Acting School Physical Theatre Graduate 2019) formed the theatre company Project Lockout with fellow East 15 Physical Theatre and World Performance students during 2017.
Project Lockout began on the foundation of combining spoken word and movement within theatre. This led to the company’s ethos of giving people a voice through free writing - in particular young adults.

In its artistic development, Project Lockout continually seeks to develop their methods of creating movement. Discovering their own language, the company seeks to reignite the artform of mime- slowly reintroducing the medium within their work under the banner of cinematic-mime.
