New Works at the Playhouse! A unique opportunity to see the first public reading of a new comedy and meet an emerging young playwright.
Be in the room for the first public reading of The Incubators, on the Playhouse stage!
On the first day of California Right To Life Leadership Camp Age Division 15–18, everyone is so so excited. And nervous! And, honestly, mad!! At the state of the world, etc. But mostly excited — they’re finally surrounded by like-minded activists ready to fight on the front lines for what they believe in, with new strategies of warfare. In Madison Fiedler’s new, absurdist dark comedy The Incubators, Anthony wants to blow up Planned Parenthood and Saidie wants to be pregnant so bad and Billie isn’t sure she belongs here, but the one thing they can all get behind is that they are The Pro-Life Generation and they’re just getting started.
This reading is a culmination of a two-day workshop of a new draft — and you’re invited! The Playhouse New Works Initiative has provided dramaturgical and casting support in addition to producing the workshop. Learn more about the New Works Initiative »

The thing that makes THE INCUBATORS such an important piece of theater is that it asks questions rather than provides answers. Its honest and complex exploration of this group of pro-life young adults is not only intriguing, but avoids becoming opinionated propaganda. This is what makes great art. This is why we knew we needed to bring this play to our audience."LIAM LONEGAN
