Our latest project in our Incubator Series for new work is The Sweet New by local playwright and film artist Ray Rea. The Sweet New chronicles several generations of a family as they grapple with issues of identity.

We are excited to be reading this play for The Arts Partnership’s Community Supported Arts shareholders on October 25th. We plan to host a public reading in late winter or early spring as well.
