'A real standout from all the stand-up, this is comic improvisation theatre-style. It can be anything from a mundane event on the way to the theatre, to a traumatic childhood experience. The interaction is fun, compelling and very imaginative. And the quick-witted troupe step into your story, giving it a genre and treatment in seconds - making it very slick. 'Will keep you coming back for another unrepeatable performance' ***** (Mirror). 'It doesn't get any better than this. Spontaneous, ingenious and thoroughly entertaining. One hour was way too short for this treat' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

A trip around the Free Fringe

It's 9.45am at the lairy end of the Cowgate, the soot-blackened, sick-splattered channel that runs through Edinburgh's Old Town, parallel to and downhill from (in every sense of the word) the wide, sunlit Royal Mile.

Barry Didcock, Sunday Herald, 23rd August 2015

More details

Playback can be funny, sad, silly, moving, amazing...

Playback Impro plays back moments and stories taken from the audience on the spot. Come and tell a story or moment from your life and get the actors to play it back... or just sit back and let others tell theirs. Interactive if you want but no compulsion to join in, Playback is performed internationally.
Spontaneous live theatre.

A Drunken Sailor Plays Back was formed in November 2013 and performs monthly at the Bread & Roses pub theatre in London. After two enjoyable runs at the Brighton Fringe and one at Edinburgh 2014, A Drunken Sailor Playback Impro comes to Edinburgh 2015 for a full run - two shows every day except Mondays.
