London Playback Theatre
Friday 21st February, 7.30-9.30pm on ‘Rebellion, Defiance & Dissent’

London Playback Theatre is a team of internationally experienced professional theatre practitioners, consultants, educators, and therapists. We create spontaneous, improvised theatre through a unique collaboration between performers and audience. We encourage people to share their real life stories – through the magic of theatre – we bring those stories to life. Our work offers opportunities for participants to deepen their understanding of each other and to develop authentic ways of communicating. As an audience member you are not in the spotlight unless you choose to put up your hand to share something – you will be engaged in the whole experience as friendly witness – and you can stay for conversation afterwards. Playback Theatre returns on 15th November. They offer their performances free of charge and welcome donations. For more information see: / Email:
