LaBute New Theater Festival 

St. Louis Actors' Studio's LaBute New Theater Festival is well on its way to becoming an eagerly awaited summer tradition. Playwright Neil LaBute and a circle of readers select a large handful of fresh one-acts submitted by both professional and high school playwrights. The winning entrants are presented in fully staged productions at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; 314-458-2978 or www.stlas.org), with a new play by LaBute as the centerpiece of each night. While the winning entrants represent the breadth of theater's possibilities -- there are comedies, dramas, strange slices-of-life and hopeful pieces -- they all share a commitment to the art of saying something about what it is to be human. This year's LaBute New Theater Festival takes place at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (July 10 to August 2). Tickets are $30 to $35.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: July 10. Continues through Aug. 2, 2015
