Incubator Series

A Red Orchid Incubator: A Series dedicated to getting to know new
and/or up and coming artists in Chicago

A Red Orchid Theatre’s Incubator Series was created to get to know emerging talent and foster exploration in Chicago’s theatre community. The idea behind this series is to give artists a stage/space to incubate new work, new artistic relationships and/or new artistic forms.  A Red Orchid’s ensemble maintains the conviction that live theatre is the greatest sustenance for the human spirit, and that passionately committed artists will draw passionately committed audiences.  The Incubator is an active manifestation of that conviction and of A Red Orchid’s mission to cultivate new audiences for the modern stage.
