INKubator New Play Festival

Art House Productions proudly 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. 

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.
