Playback Theatre Sydney presents: 

Playback Theatre Sydney perform improvised theatre based on the stories of the audience.

The Gift

As the end of the year comes closer, we’re reflecting on the gifts we give and receive. The presents wrapped in paper, the kindness of friends or strangers, the surprises that arrive, the talents we discover, even the tragedies that, sometimes, can turn into blessings.
What gifts have you given, or received? What gifts have you discovered, recently or as you reflect?
At Playback Theatre Sydney we turn the stories of the audience into improvised theatre. Our actors, musician, conductor and lighting technician use the alchemy of improvisation to create engaging theatre on the spot, with no time to plan.. just like that.
Come and share your story or hear the stories of others, as we explore what The Gift might be.
