McEneny's The Island of Doctor Moreau, Rose-Marie Brandwein's Expiration Date, Ryan Good's Sex with Animals, Bill Bowers' It Goes Without Saying, Grace Kiley's Longing For Grace, Adam Strauss' The Sordid Sex Life of the Montane Vole, Alexandra Devon's His Majesty, The Devil, Monica Bauer's The Year I Was Gifted, Richard Smithies-directed Honest Iago and 3 Other Choice Villains from Shakespeare, Penny Jackson's Safe, Chris Harcum's American Gun Show, and Sandro Monetti's Miserable Lesbians: The Musical Parody.

East to Edinburgh simulates the same production constraints that all shows experience during the Festival, while giving them a clean, comfortable, and nurturing space to fine-tune their productions.
