Art House Productions presents the INKubator New Play Festival. The festival which features eight emerging playwrights runs Friday May 10th through Sunday, May 12th, 2019. Tickets are $10 per night. To purchase tickets and for more information visit www.arthouseproductions.org

This inaugural three-day new play festival is the culmination of Art House's 2018-2019 INKubator play development program in which a group of eight selected writers including Molly Bicks (The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center), Stephen Kaplan (Old Globe Theatre, EST, HERE/Lincoln Center Theatre's American Living Room Series, Dramatist Guild), Emily Kitchens (The American Conservatory Theater, Yale Repertory Theatre, The Kennedy Center) , Dan O'Neil (Abrons Arts Center, HERE, Ugly Rhino, Dixon Place), Lia Romeo (018 O'Neill Playwrights' Conference), Michael Shayan (La MaMa, The Lark), Catherine Weingarten (Scott McPherson award winner and a 2018 Finalist for the WP Lab), and Ruth Zamoyta (semi-finalist for the 2018 Bay Area Playwrights Festival, American Playwriting Foundation's Relentless Award) spent a year developing new plays alongside INKubator's resident director, Alex Tobey. Audiences attending the festival will have a unique opportunity to engage with writers, directors, and the INKubator playwrights and be a part of shaping the stories of tomorrow.

The INKubator New Play Festival is made possible in part from a donation made by Mapp International and in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts; administered by the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development, and by the County of Hudson, Thomas A. DeGise, Hudson County Executive, and the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

Art House Productions (AHP) was founded shortly after the devastating events of September 11, 2001 in order to create a safe and healing place for artists and community members to connect through creative expression. Since then, AHP has grown significantly. In 2007, AHP became a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and was presented with the Key to the City by Jersey City for being a pioneer of artistic and cultural programming and a model of what the arts can do for evolving urban centers. Now in its 18th year, AHP presents a professional season of two Actors' Equity Association mainstage productions, four curated visual art exhibitions, over six youth and adult arts education programs both in school and after school, and the free, quarterly arts festival, JC Fridays, which serves over 15,000 people annually.

AHP's mission is to engage, inspire, entertain and challenge audiences with highly intentional visual and performing arts programming; provide arts education to promote lifelong learning to diverse communities; and celebrate the essential power of the arts to illuminate humanity. AHP provides a home for innovative performing, visual, and literary artists to develop new work; presents emerging and under-recognized artists who are making significant contributions to their respective fields; and serves as a safe space for established artists to take creative risks.

Art House's 5,500 square foot facility has elevator access, gender-neutral family bathrooms, and wheelchair ramp accessibility. For accessibility requests and inquiries, please contact info@arthouseproductions.org or call 201-918-6019
