What We Do

You Are Always Welcome

Fierce Backbone currently meets by Zoom on Monday night at 7:00pm and we read sections of three different plays and offer the writers feedback. 

Once a month we meet in person at The Pico Playhouse!

On select Saturdays, “Extra Fierce” meets at 10am with the same format.


Occasionally, we present full reads on Monday nights and Saturday mornings.  We encourage you to join our email list


Guests are always welcome.  If you’d like to join any event, please email and we’ll send you the link.

Ink Pen


Our process takes a play from first reading through every intermediate step until it is ready for full production. We champion the work of all our writers, no matter how experimental or mainstream.

Actors Rehearsing


Our actors receive priority in casting and all opportunities to grow their craft. Hone your cold reading skills with new and unique characters


Our Core Values

The Plays written by our members

We are never afraid to say, “I don’t know.” Then strive to figure it out.

We create a collaborative atmosphere that fosters a safe home and structure for experimentation; We encourage communication and healthy debate in all matters.

Transparency in our decision-making process and our finances/governance​​

We expect our members to share the burden and joy of production.

Attract and develop artists who command attention; Artists who know when to put their ego aside and allow others to shine.​​

Evolve and grow diverse artistic disciplines through a viable development process to create new work through a peer-review process

Building connections and working relationships with other theater companies and our community at large.

Balance the goals and needs of individual members

Above all things, we adhere to integrity in our personal, business and artistic relationships. We place the highest value on respect, tolerance, acceptance, honesty and accountability.
