Artist's Incubator @ The Spot

The Spot has been a home for new work since it began and we have decided to make our commitment to emerging theater artists official.
Welcome to THE GARAGE: Artist's Incubator @ The Spot.
Where do all the best ideas start? In garages! In our case, we've doubled down on that model. We've been producing and inviting audiences into ours since 2014.
The Artist's Incubator is different though.
We have created a one of a kind artistic residency program in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho, designed to allow theater artists the space (literally and figuratively) and resources necessary to develop their WIP's. (Works in process.)
We are incredibly excited to announce the inaugural artist at THE GARAGE is accomplished, Brooklyn-based playwright and actress, ABBY ROSEBROCK.
Spot audiences will remember her work from 2017 when we produced the western premiere of Abby's DIDO OF IDAHO.
Abby Rosebrock is a Brooklyn-based writer and actress from South Carolina. She is the author of SINGLES IN AGRICULTURE, DIDO OF IDAHO, BLUE RIDGE, WILMA, DIFFERENT ANIMALS, NO ONE IS HOME, and more. Her plays have been produced and developed throughout New York City and in venues across the US. An alumna of emerging writers’ groups at Ensemble Studio Theatre and Clubbed Thumb, she has been commissioned by Atlantic Theater, Manhattan Theater Club, Williamstown, EST/Sloan Foundation, Bristol Riverside Theatre, and Montana Rep.

ABBY x THE GARAGE
Abby's current projects include a trilogy of linked plays about downward mobility, girlhood, and coming of age in the nineties. She is interested in the ways economic precarity can warp lives and relationships, as well as the psychological toll of atomization and digital media. At The Garage, she'll be working on the trilogy's third installment and sharing work with local students and artists. After seeing The Spot's production of Dido of Idaho, she couldn't be more thrilled to be developing new work with this community.
Stay tuned for more information about Abby's upcoming work + her residency with us!
