Playback Theatre

Playback Theatre is an original form of improvisational theatre in which audience or group members tell stories from their lives, and watch them enacted on the spot. Whether in public theatres, workshops, educational or clinical settings, Playback Theatre affirms the importance and dignity of personal experience, enables people to view their lives in new ways, and draws people closer as they see their common humanity. First created in 1975, the form was developed by Jonathan Fox and Jo Salas and the original Playback Theatre company in the Hudson Valley of New York.
