Playback Theatre


With the Playback Edinburgh Theatre Group

Playback is a unique form of interactive theatre where participants and audiences are invited to share moments and stories from their lives. 

The stories are heard, honoured and witnessed by the performers who bring them to life using voice, movement, dance, music and song. The playback theatre style is a powerful tool for affirming life experiences and building community.

Playback was founded in 1975 in New York by Jonathan Fox, Jo Salas and the original Playback Theatre company. There are now companies and practitioners all around the world.
