We produced a total of 14 brilliant shows by some of the most amazing artists from around the world at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, including Courtney Act, Roddy Bottum, Michelle Shocked, Tomás Ford, Joe’s NYC Bar, Carla Lippis, and Hans.

The success of our most recent festival season has helped us establish strong, ongoing relationships with many of these artists and shows and we couldn’t be prouder of our ‘Civil family’ and their work.
