What Is 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 theatres, workshops, educational or clinical settings, playback theatre draws people closer as they see their common humanity.

Playback Theatre was founded in 1975 in the Mid-Hudson Valley in New York by Jonathan Fox with Jo Salas and the original Playback Theatre company. Since then, Playback Theatre has reached hundreds of settings and locations. A support organization, the International Playback Theatre Network, provides connection and information for Playback practitioners on five continents.
