Thank you for a wonderful season!! Details about our 2015-2016 public season are coming, so keep checking back with us.

We are pleased to be partnering with NAMI/Multnomah and Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare,  to present a special show called, Break the Silence, Break the Stigma.  This show will be on Tuesday, September 15th, 7:30pm-9:30pm at Artists Repertory Theater, located at 1515 SW Morrison St, Portland, OR 97205.

Mental health issues affect us all in one way or another, yet the shame and stigma surrounding mental illness keeps many of us silent. Break the Silence, Break the Stigma uses the power of theater combined with real people’s stories to lift the veil surrounding mental illness and start a dialogue toward healing.

Portland Playback Theater, in collaboration with NAMI Multnomah, Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare brings true stories of struggle and triumph to the stage at Artists Repertory Theater for one night only. After this powerful performance, audience members will have an opportunity to dialogue with community members working in the field of mental health.

Part of the proceeds from this one-time performance benefit local mental health organizations.

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.
