Extended Play is a wing of the Civilians, the center for investigative theater. To stay up-to-date on the activities of the Civilians and learn how to join us in person at a live event, follow us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also explore audio and video footage from the Civilians’ past shows on iTunes and YouTube.


Extended Play provides a stage to expand the inquiry of our socially-engaged artists and audiences. It allows us to more-deeply investigate issues that we’ve explored elsewhere, and it gives an alternative platform for the dynamic voices of the Civilians’ community. We need your help to continue Extended Play and expand its reach. Your tax-deductible gift will allow us to create and commission more content that discusses critical issues from these distinctive, varied perspectives.
