Beyond Theatre tells originator Jonathan Fox ’s personal story of the background and evolution of playback theatre, with chapters about his childhood in New York City and formative experiences as a young man in Nepal and New Zealand. He describes the emergence of the playback theatre vision, and how playback grew from its beginnings with the original company to its current worldwide presence. It is a story of struggle as well as discovery—as he tried to find acceptance and support for a theatre transcendng familiar categories—and ends with a tribute to stories and the people who tell them.


Jonathan Fox is the founder, with Jo Salas, of playback theatre. He is a Harvard graduate and Fulbright scholar, and the recipient of an honorary doctorate from the University of Kassel in Germany. He is the author of Acts of Service: Spontaneity, Commitment, Tradition in the NonscriptedTheatre and the co-editor of Gathering Voices: Essays on Playback Theatre.
