Paines Plough's Roundabout Season visited the OT in a co-production directed by James Grieve, featuring the world premieres of Out Of Love by Elinor Cook, Black Mountain by Brad Birch and How To Be A Kid by Sarah McDonald Hughes. 

The world premiere of Joe White's Mayfly "a warm, wise, sad, enthralling debut" (The Telegraph) directed by Guy Jones, was a five star hit. 

There were the first major London revivals of Humble Boy by Charlotte Jones and Jo Clifford's Losing Venice, both directed by Paul Miller.  The latter was followed by Martin Crimp's Dealing With Clair, which  first premiered at the OT 30 years earlier, in a new English Touring Theatre co-production directed by Richard Twyman. The UK premiere of the Yale Drama Prize winner Utility by Emily Schwend was directed by Caitlin Macleod.

Selina Cadell directed the Restoration Comedy The Double Dealer and the original family show Can't Wait for Christmas! created by Imogen Bond & Tarek Merchant was so successful, it returned for the following year's festive season.
