Although "play" is in the name, an Asheville Playback show is not your typical theatrical performance. To start with, there's no script. "At a playback show you will encounter real life rather than a scripted production," says an explanation of the event. "The actors and musicians improvise, guided and inspired by true life/personal stories provided by the audience." A new season of improvisational performance opens on Friday, Sept. 16 at the Masonic Temple (80 Broadway St.). 8 p.m., pay-what-you-will. http://www.globalplayback.org/asheville-playback.htm.
