your story is a treasure trove of courage, insight, and resilience.

San Francisco Playback Theater builds communities based on empathy.  At our private and public performances, we invite audience members to share real life stories that we then bring to life using improvisation, movement, spoken word, ritual and music. 

In a fast-paced, disconnected world, we honor the power and wisdom of stories.  Allow us to honor you.
