LaBute New Theater Festival 

When: Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through July 30 2017
Price: $30-$35
Now in its fifth year, St. Louis Actors' Studio's LaBute New Theater Festival is a guaranteed good time for fans of new and exciting plays. The eponymous Neil LaBute contributes "Hate Crime," which will open every performance. Among the five other finalists are two St. Louisans, Carter Lewis and Tearrance Chisholm. Lewis should be familiar to Repertory Theatre of St. Louis audiences, as the company has mounted four of his plays in the past, including the incendiary Evie's Waltz. Chisholm rocked Washington, D.C., early this year with his play Hooded, or Being Black for Dummies, a sharp bit of meta-theater with a laugh track and a wary eye for the dangers of growing up black in America. The 2017 LaBute New Theater Festival takes place at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday (July 7 to 30) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; Tickets are $30 to $35.
