Welcome to Playback Theater of Portland, OR


Upcoming Public Show


Damn, I Hate You

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

7:30pm | Adult Show (16 and up)

Stories of Resentment and Grudges

From the Capulets and Montagues to your co-workers who glare at each other every time they pass by, feelings of resentment and the holding of grudges is as old as history itself. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes they are serious and always they are important to the persons involved.

In this show, we will explore the theme by inviting audience members to share those stories that they have been holding onto for days, month or even years.

What is Playback, you ask?

Playback theater is an improvisational form of theater whereby audience members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot by actors and musicians. Playback is a vehicle not only of personal expression, but a way to create a future – It is powerful and creative, allowing diverse voices to be heard and respected. For more info, click here.
