Through a performance and a brief presentation, you will learn about our work over the past 16 years using Playback Theatre (applied improvisational theatre, dance, and music) in the greater Boston community. You will hear about our challenges, joys, and hoped for (and unanticipated) rewards of working with different constituencies, including homeless veterans, cancer survivors, LGBTQ+ youth, and seniors. We will also discuss our exciting new work in partnership with several nearby towns on Bystander Intervention trainings.
