“ Being associated with Playback Theater has provided so much healing and community for me here in Portland. This is such a great group of people who listen deeply and treat people's stories with such respect and insight, using particular artistic techniques and forms. Their work has helped me re-frame sad events in my life, or simply to help celebrate the happy stories and events with my neighbors and friends. ”
