Welcome to Summerhall’s 2016 festival programme. We’re very proud that so many brilliant theatre-makers from all over the world now see Summerhall as the natural home for their work; especially work which is risky, engaging, has something to say about the world we live in and which is pushing at the boundaries of what theatre can be.
The festival is a chance for audiences of all ages to make new discoveries and new connections – both socially in our festival courtyard and in those fleeting moments of insight or emotion shared between audience and artist. Please join us for a feast of international theatre, performance, visual art, dance and music this summer.
