Playback Theatre is a form of improvisational theatre in which audience members tell stories from their lives and then watch as actors and musicians enact them on the spot using movement, music and words, but without script or rehearsal.


Playback Theatre is a wonderful way for people to share stories on common themes. Audiences are left with a better understanding of the issues that concern them as members of organisations, as co-workers or as part of a community, and with a greater sense of connection to each other and their common goals and struggles.

Playback is a particularly suited to conferences, workshops and other events that address social issues and for professionals who work in community and social welfare areas. It is also an excellent way to celebrate achievements and address workplace, team building and organisational change issues.

Community and Corporate Performance Feedback: "Congratulations to PBT crew - awesome grasp of complex situations and beautiful sensitivity to deep feelings, both joy & pain. Well done! "


"I didn't realise how moving a vehicle for change of prejudice + fixed ideas theatre could be. Fantastic experience. Thank you."
