Simpatico was conceived in Portland, Maine by five Portland Stage Company interns who shared a belief that theatre has the power and potential to be a force for direct social change. The founding members C. Ryanne Domingues, Jennifer Pratt-Johnson, Angela S. Zuck, Jacob Walton, and Katie Driscoll decided to establish the company in Philadelphia, which they regarded as a large city that still retained a strong sense of community.  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.

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.
