Come see online Playback shows by PNA member companies
Then join the post-show “talkbacks” for Playback practitioners, listed below.  The talkbacks are a chance to give the performers some empathy and appreciation (including doing Playback for them!)  and to ask questions about their online experience. 

If you are a PNA member company planning an online show, we would love to add you to this series.

Note: additional online shows are posted on  the Facebook groups Zooming Playback and Playback Around the World.
