Playback Impro plays back moments and stories taken from the audience on the spot. ....★★★★★ The Mirror: 'A real standout from all the stand-up, this is comic improvisation theatre-style. Four actors each take it in turn to direct a narrative supplied by the audience. It can be anything from a mundane event on the way to the theatre, to a traumatic childhood experience. The interaction ! is fun, compelling and very imaginative. And the quick-witted troupe step into your story, giving it a genre and treatment in seconds - making it very slick. A show that will keep you coming back for another unrepeatable performance.' Broadway Baby ★★★★ (review for Playback Impro at the Quadrant Brighton fringe 2014) 'It doesn't get any better than this - spontaneous, ingenious and thoroughly entertaining. One hour was way too short for this treat' ★★★★ Broadway Baby Edinburgh 'The Fringe is absolutely saturated with wonderful improvised comedy. Stalwarts of the festival have consistently provided brilliant nights out for years. To stand out in this competitive environment is quite a feat, but London-based troop A Drunken Sailor manage it with their Free Fringe offering - a fresh, funny and strangely cathartic show.' ★★★★
Playback can be funny, sad, silly, moving, amazing....Come and tell a story or moment from your life and get the actors to play it back...or just sit back and let others tell theirs. Interactive if you want it to be but no compulsion to join in. Playback is international theatre performed throughout the world. Totally spontaneous live theatre with the audience as the star.
