Who We Are...
Skipping Stones Theatre is an independent Toronto-based theatre collective whose mandate is to explore stories through the lens of mental health and neurodiversity. Mental health is more than a list of disorders; everyone's mental health is in an ongoing state of flux, and we're all trying to find ways of managing it.
Our focus is to develop theatre for social change. We start by asking what new tools people will leave the theatre with. How will this influence the way they communicate with their loved ones? Will they start asking the right questions and listening constructively?
Theatre in our hands is a tool for enabling people to understand what it’s like to cope with a state of mind that is outside of their own experience. We thus contribute in ongoing efforts to de-stigmatize conditions that are often misunderstood, poorly portrayed, and sometimes ridiculed.
We produce new Canadian work, adaptations of classics, and published contemporary plays.
We seek to create safe and empowering spaces for artists of all genders, ethnicities, abilities, and intersections.
