"Every Livin' Soul" in 2022 Dayton Playhouse FutureFest


For the second year in a row, the Dayton Playhouse FutureFest will present a new work by William Cameron. Every Livin' Soul is one of six new works to be featured in the 2022 FutureFest, being held the weekend of July 15-17, 2022. Click here to read about this year's festival.


In the darkest days of the Depression, a stranger finds refuge in an Ohio farmhouse. He begs a meal from Hannah, the widowed owner, and the two form a kinship. For Hannah, this handsome young man might be the harbinger of a brighter future. As her husband used to say, “There’s a little bit of good in every livin’ soul.” But when the stranger’s perilous secret is revealed, Hannah finds herself in a struggle for her family’s very existence.


Inspired by actual events, Every Livin’ Soul celebrates the resilience of hope in the face of desperation and heartbreak.
