Project Description

Cornerstone makes new plays with and about communities. By combining the artistry of people with many levels of theatrical experience, we act upon the conviction that artistic expression is civic engagement and that access to a creative forum is essential to the wellness and health of every individual and community.

Cornerstone is a community-based theater company led by a Board of Directors and artistic Ensemble, and is supported by a professional staff. The Ensemble began in 1986 as a group of theatermakers traveling nationwide, primarily in rural communities, performing in different cities and states with each production. Since 1992, we have been based in Los Angeles, focusing largely on urban collaborations, while traveling to many different regions throughout California. Cornerstone has commissioned more than 100 playwrights, produced over 150 new works, trained thousands of students in our methodology, and worked with tens of thousands of community members across the country.
