About Simpatico Theatre
Simpatico Theatre believes theatre to be a force for positive social change. Simpatico is Philadelphia’s only theatre company specifically dedicated to forming a partnership between its audience and other nonprofit organizations in order to fulfill its artistic objective. By establishing educational partnerships with local organizations and advocacy groups we connect our audience to those individuals and groups that are also seeking solutions.
Simpatico staged its inaugural production in August 2005, producing the Philadelphia premiere of Stop Kiss by Diana Son, which tells the story of two women who are the victims of a hate crime. Simpatico established its first community partnerships with the Equality Advocates of Pennsylvania and the Women’s Anti-Violence Education group.
