We are an improvisation based company using the performing arts to create individual and societal change.

Each audience member’s recollection of a moment or experience from their own lives serves as a catalyst for a compelling dramatic performance. We seek to invite personal storytelling to build community throughout metro New York and strive to elicit and enact the stories of individuals and groups who are often underserved and socially underrepresented throughout metro New York.

The Impact

The work of Village Playback Theatre:

Increases empathy for others and increases a sense of belonging.

Changes hearts and minds by showing the human being behind the story.

Provides storytellers with new perspectives about their own experiences. 

Gives those the chance to tell their stories or raise their voices in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
