THE SEVEN is one of the nation's premiere short works festivals.  It features seven fully produced world-premieres, utilizing seven different directors and a professional ensemble cast.  The scripts are read by a jury of theatre professionals (blindly, without any identification of the playwright) and the seven highest scoring scripts will be produced.  The overall Jury Award-winner will receive transportation to and lodging at the festival.  The Audience Choice Award-winner will be announced on June 15.

This year, in honor of the festival's 10th anniversary, FUSION is holding "The 2nd Seven", which will be a one-night reading on June 10th of the seven plays that finished 8th - 14th in the jury voting.
