We create theater that transforms communities and plants seeds of opportunity!
Cornerstone creates theater that transforms people and communities. We create plays based on the stories of the communities we meet. Our process is collaborative, challenging, unpredictable, and beautiful.
For over 26 years, we've brought together an ensemble of professional arists of the highest caliber with people who would never think of themselves as artists to produce works of excellence based on the stories, concerns and issues of a given community.
Our plays celebrate many voices, and are staged in theaters and in parking lots, in factories, schools and subway stations. We strive to include people who have not been on stage or even seen theater. We’ve taken up residence in small towns and urban neighborhoods, collaborating with locals from start to finish to tell their unique stories through theater.
Our current series of plays is called THE HUNGER CYCLE. Over six years, we’re presenting nine world premiere plays that explore our relationship to the most elemental of needs – hunger. We’re looking at food equity, urban and rural farming, food addiction, community gardens, and many others issues.
