Jumpers is a play by Tom Stoppard. It explores and satirizes the field of academic philosophy, likening it to a less-than-skillful competitive gymnastics display. Jumpers raise questions such as "What do we know?" and "Where do values come from?" The play was first performed by the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic Theatre.
