Austin Playback Theatre, by Austin Playback Theatre. Playback is an improvisational theatre developed by Jonathan Fox in which the troupe elicits stories from the audience and uses a variety of forms to play them back. Stories run the gamut from first orgasm to spending time with a parent with Alzheimer’s. Our goals are to honor the dignity of each offering/individual/story, build understanding and uncover the commonalities, the “red thread,” fostering meaningful connection.
