Playback Theatre York began in 1991. The Company is made up of professional actors, teachers, managers and therapists who have extensive expertise in working with different groups of people in a range of settings.
Several members of the company have trained in the USA with Jonathan Fox who founded the original playback theatre company in the 1970s.
In 1999 Playback Theatre York hosted a major international playback conference with companies from 23 countries. We perform regularly in educational settings, for professional organisations, at conferences and in educational and health settings. We can also perform at celebrations such as farewells, birthdays or wedding parties.
