The Gray Cat and the Flounder

The Gray Cat and the Flounder merges music with theatre to paint a portrait of love and loss that’s both heartbreaking and uplifting, ultimately leaving you with the warm, fuzzy notion that true romance is beautifully ordinary.

Jock Tamson’s Bairns

You go to a club to watch some drag. The music is great. The performances are on point, the booze is flowing freely and the room is filled with laughter. Someone says something stupid. Possibly homophobic. Possibly sexist. Do you challenge them? The rules for Jock Tamson’s Bairns are simple: Decide when you arrive if you want to see the show or be the show. Listen. Learn. Engage. Just don’t be a dick.

Bugle Boys: Christmas Crackers

Ho, ho, hoes! Gird your loins, Edinburgh, and lock up your sons...or better yet, send them to Assembly Roxy and let the Bugle Boys turn them into men. That's right; Santa’s little drag slags are coming to town this December with new show Bugle Boys: Christmas Crackers, and it’s going to be camp as...well, Christmas! It's the perfect raunchy alternative to a traditional office party, queer social, stag do or girls night out – and £5 tickets are now on sale for the opening performances.


Hans seduced men left, right and centre at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, notching up two 5-star reviews as well as being named Best Cabaret Performance at the Scottish Sun Fringe Gongs. This summer, Hans returns to the UK with previews of his brand new show Like A German in London and a highly anticipated second run at the Edinburgh Fringe. He's so in demand these days he'll only be doing a half run, so make sure you get your tickets booked quickly to avoid disappointment! 

Bugle Boys

Before The Spice Girls, before The Supremes, there was The Andrews Sisters. During the late 1930s and 1940s this original girl group was a global sensation, selling millions of records. In Bugle Boys, three sassy female impersonators bitch, squabble, and sing some of The Andrews Sisters most beloved songs, delivering a hilarious and ludicrously fictitious tale of their life and career. An original Australian production, Bugle Boys will have its European premiere in Edinburgh this summer. 

Michael Griffiths: Sweet Dreams

In Sweet Dreams, Michael is Annie Lennox...but in spirit only. From the gender-bending early days as half of 80s new wave sensation Eurythmics through to her stunning solo career, Annie’s bittersweet lyrics share stories of her triumphs and her heartbreak.

Michelle Shocked: Truth vs. Reality

We at Civil Disobedience are incredibly pleased not only to have Michelle Shocked involved with Joe's NYC Bar, but to be helping her bring her own show - Truth Vs. Reality - to this year's Edinburgh Fringe. It's a retrospective of her Grammy-nominated albums, wrapped up in an exploration of her controversial career.

Roddy Bottum’s Sasquatch, The Opera

Written and directed by Roddy, this modern, unearthly opera is about a small-town redneck family that runs ‘Bigfoot Tours’ for tourists, and the fallout when the daughter meets and runs away with the real Sasquatch. Part folklore, part love story, the opera follows the demise of the family and a taboo love affair that blossoms in its aftermath.

Tomás Ford: Australia’s king of alt-cabaret

We just love Tomás Ford. It's impossible not to, once you've been initiated to his mix of powerful synth sounds, flashing lights, video projections, outlandish vocals, and crazy party spirit. To us he embodies cabaret at its most wildest fun, and we're delighted to be producing his 2017 Edinburgh Fringe shows and European tour.
