A unique theatre company

Formed in 1997, based in Bristol, and with seventy four 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."

In a year where Stepping Out Theatre have already suffered the loss of two longstanding group members, we are sad to announce that a third, Steve Franks passed away suddenly on Tuesday 3rd December after suffering a stroke at home that day.

'Stevie' as he liked to be known was one of our most active and enthusiastic members in recent years. He performed in 4 shows over the last two years, attended almost all of the workshops and theatre trips run by the group in that period, and came with us to Finland in 2018 and France in 2019. Stevie had been an enthusiastic participant in the series of workshops run by Holly Stoppit during November and December. His unexpected and very sudden death comes as a huge shock to his many friends in the group, and he will be hugely missed. Stevie's funeral will be

January 8th at 2.15 at Canford Crematorium, Westbury on Trym.
