Dayton Playhouse has sponsored FutureFest, a festival of new and unproduced plays for over twenty five years, put on by a community theater run entirely by volunteers. Each year we bring you in one weekend six new unproduced plays as chosen by the FF committee from the submissions entered that year. Each play is dramatized as either a staged reading or a full dramatization. Each play is a full length play and we do not limit the subject matter. We bring the playwrights to the festival for the weekend so you can mingle with them and we have talk back sessions with them after their show. We bring in adjudicators from around the country to pick the best play and give the playwrights a professional critique in front of the FF audience. It’s a play lover’s dream come true, and an opportunity a playwright can’t get anywhere else.
FutureFest dates for 2017 will be July 21-23. The finalist plays for FutureFest will be announced in May 2017.
We’re always looking for volunteers to read plays and help with FutureFest. If you’d like to become a part of this great tradition, please contact Fran Pesch, we’d love to have you.
