This Beautiful City has been described by The New York Times as an engaging, inquisitive and moving piece of theatre. A play with music, created from interviews with numerous individuals, it explores the evangelical movement and its unofficial U.S. capital, Colorado Springs. The Civilians’ project looks at the city as a microcosm of issues facing the country as a whole – the shifting between church and state, changing ideas about the nature of Christianity, and how different ideas can either coexist or conflict within a community.
