PERSONAL STORIES IN PUBLIC SPACES gathers together, for the first time in one place, key
essays, articles, talks, and reminiscences by Playback Theatre’s founders. Covering a body of
work that spans almost five decades and locations from war zones to great cities, this
anthology takes the reader on a journey from the earliest days of Playback Theatre to the
present day, and includes several essays written specifically for this collection.

“Playback Theatre is one of the most widely used forms of applied performance throughout the world. This book from its founders is a timely reminder of Playback's practice and theory, highlighting both its social significance as a public storytelling method and its artistic importance in advancing the aesthetics of theatre for communities. The authors draw upon a lifetime as practitioners in an enormous range of contexts to demonstrate again and again the power of the story in helping each of us to make sense of our relationship to the world.”-- Tim Prentki, Emeritus Professor of Theatre for Development at the University of Winchester, UK, and co-editor of the Applied Theatre Reader (Routledge).
