A unique theatre company

Formed in 1997, based in Bristol, and with sixty three productions to its credit, Stepping Out Theatre is the country's leading mental health theatre group. It has produced a wide range of work on mental health themes and is open to people who have used mental health services and their allies.


Mark Rylance, Patron

"The work Stepping Out Theatre is doing should be supported by all interested in a society that is healthy. Stepping Out understands and does not shy away from the possibility that theatre, the ancient art of these islands North West of Europe, is a transformative and healing activity which brings joy into people's lives. If you want to hear something true, go and hear what Stepping Out Theatre are saying. I only found myself in theatre, and I hear that Stepping Out is helping other people do the same. I have great hopes for this company and deep respect for what they are doing right now."

20 Years of Stepping Out Theatre!
Aug 2017

Latest News image

The celebrations of 20 years of Stepping Out Theatre began with a revival of our Art and Soul Cabaret in July, and they continued with an open air music and poetry event in the wonderful surroundings of the Temple of Harmony in a beautiful country setting near the village of Goathurst.

Musicians and poets from Stepping Out Theatre and Mind Your Music brought life back to the classic folly temple where a statue of Terpsichore, the Muse of Song and Dance, watched over proceedings throughout a gloriously sunny afternoon and a warm summer evening. Later, for those staying at the Secret Valley campsite nearby, the Perseid meteor shower arrived to add a final touch of stardust to a magical day.
