DAYTON -- FutureFest is an annual festival of new plays presented by the Dayton Playhouse.  This year’s festival will be July 26-28.  During the three-day festival, audience members join the playwrights and professional adjudicators in viewing, and reviewing, six new scripts presented half as staged readings and half as fully staged productions.

The Dayton Playhouse received 190 eligible scripts from across the country for this year’s FutureFest.

Here are the six finalists along with their performance schedule:

Veils by Tom Coash of New Haven, Connecticut (staged reading July 27, 10 a.m.)

The One with Olives by Sam Havens of Houston, Texas (staged reading July 27, 3 p.m.)  Havens also wrote Curve which was a finalist in 2012 FurtureFest.

On the Road to Kingdom Come by Michael Feely of Woodland Hills, California (fully staged performance July 27, 8 p.m.)  Feely’s play Night and Fog won the festival in 2009.

St. Paulie’s Delight by Jacob Cox of Chicago (staged reading July 28, 10 a.m.)

Adjudicators for FutureFest 2013 will be David Finkle, freelance reporter and reviewer  for the Village Voice and the Huffington Post;  Rob Koon, resident playwright and dramaturg at Chicago Dramatists; Faye Sholiton, Cleveland playwright who serves as the Ohio representative to the Dramatists Guild; Helen Sneed, whose career included work in Theatre Professional Rights at Dramatists Play Service; and Eleanore Speert, founder of Speert Publishing and former publications director for Dramatists Play Service.
