Pete is a perfectly practical, predictable, pig, who lives an uncomplicated, solitary life..until he unexpectedly rescues a runaway circus elephant, named Pickles.
Pickles is spontaneous, imaginative and beautifies everything in her path. Before Pete realizes it, his life is changed forever, and he finds himself swan-diving off of Niagara Falls, skiing down the Matterhorn, and singing love songs on the canals of Venice.
This story is about the healing power of imagination and storytelling, and the beauty of unexpected friendships.

About the Series:

Under the guidance of ACA Resident Artists the INCUBATOR series provides rehearsal and performance space, dramaturgical and artistic support, including (as necessary) direction, casting, musical composition support, and puppetry; and marketing support.

Artistic feedback is offered using the Liz Lerman Critical Response Process that allows artists to have their vision expressed and examined following a supportive and artist-centric method.

Past participants include David and Jack Novak, whose play with music, JOURNEYING JACK went on to win The Aurand Harris Memorial Playwriting Award, and BUGS! which will be presented as part of ACA's 2017/18 Mainstage Season.
