About True Story Theater
True Story Theater performs and teaches a style of improvisation theater called Playback Theatre in which audience or group members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot.
By inviting people to share their stories and transforming them spontaneously into theater, True Story Theater‘s mission promotes social healing.
Our events create a respectful atmosphere where every voice can be heard and any story told — however ordinary or extraordinary, difficult or joyful.
True Story Theater offers audiences fresh perspectives, deeper connections, and a renewed appreciation for our common humanity.
What people say about us
Your performance was an incredible experience for me. I was particularly impressed with the instant community created in the theatre space. I’ve never felt so comfortable to talk to those around me. I’m not quite sure how you created such an atmosphere, but I cherish having been a part of it.
I can’t think of a single thing that would make an event more memorable than to have True Story Theater come in and bring people’s stories to life.
True Story was most powerful in our conference on extreme poverty. The troupe demonstrated an extraordinary ability to listen deeply to the testimonies of the presenters, and then they courageously and skillfully brought life to their experiences.
The troupe’s experience really showed. The whole effect was to create a sense of trust: that honesty was welcomed and carefully honored, and that each of us in the room would be well held in your competent hands.
