Playback Youth Theatre was founded in 1989 by Tessa Holt and Jill Norman, two drama graduates with the vision of an affordable, accessible group running workshops to create dynamic youth theatre for young people, by young people. It ran for the first few years in Gloucestershire and then Bristol, finally moving its base of operations to Exeter in 1997. Playback Exeter's first production was an adaptation of David Ashton's The Golden Door, staged as part of the BT National Connections scheme.

Since then, Playback has staged over 30 productions in Exeter, primarily at the Exeter Phoenix but also at St. Luke's College, the Barnfield Theatre and in local schools. We work on stage, on film and on CD. Our work is always original, be it new plays or adaptations.
