Memphis Matters

The concept of a Playback performance is simple — an audience member shares a reflection, moment, or true story from their lives and then watches that story played back on stage by a team of professional actors, musicians, and dancers. We find this simple act of listening to be life giving. And here’s what audience members are saying.…

“Witnessing these performances is the most powerful self-care I’ve ever experienced. Transformative. You all blow me away. I made a commitment to myself to never miss a performance, if I can help it.”   Misti Rae Holton

A Memphis Matters performance offers a needed antidote to the fear based, polarizing politics of the day. Performances draw a multi-generational audience, an amazingly, diverse cross-sector of the community.

Don’t have a story to tell? Feel free to participate or simply sit back and watch the magic unfold. Playback unlocks healing, transformation, and joy— one story at a time.

Money should not be a barrier for participation. Tickets are offered on a sliding scale from $10 – $30. Please reach out to Adriane Hall at if you cannot afford the ticketing fee. Ticket sales help support our actors in the professional ensemble.

The event is finished.
