Brisbane Playback Theatre is hosting a gathering on International Human Rights Day this weekend.

This is the third consecutive year the organisation has been involved in the event.

The theatre group will join Performers for Peace to tell the story of feisty Brisbane political activist Emma Miller.

Miller was 75 when war broke out in 1914 and she joined the Women’s Peace Army to fight against conscription.

Playback Theatre is an improvisational theatre group whose material comes from the audience. Audience members are invited to share moments and stories from their lives which are then re-enacted or ‘played back’ spontaneously by the troupe of four actors and a musician.

The Human Rights Day performance is at the Uniting Church (52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm) on December 10 from 7pm.
