Relax and enjoy an evening with Houston Playback Theatre as the true stories of audience members come to life. At each performance, audience members or “tellers” are invited to relate a lived personal story, which might date back years, or eve just a few hours! The actors listen intently and then, without discussion, improvise an on-the-spot scene and “playback” the stories, accompanied with live music. Playback Theatre shows are as varied as the audience itself, leading to an unpredictable set of vignettes, from sad to hilarious to mundane to profound. Join in and explore how your unique narrative is part of what makes up the colorful fabric of our city.
