Five theater companies with diverse styles and interests — The Landing Theatre, The Ensemble Theatre, Wordsmyth and new additions Mildred’s Umbrella and Luciole International — will join Next Iteration for this year’s edition of ReadFest Houston, a biennial opportunity to present free staged readings of new and new-to-Houston works. Dianne K. Webb, artistic director of ReadFest organizer Next Iteration, says that staged readings are particularly unique in their intimacy. “When you put the script with nothing else in the mouths of actors and you let them do what they do best, which is act, you bring to life the story in a way that is very raw and very basic and very real,” says Webb. “There’s something very magical about a reading.”

7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday. Also 7 p.m. November 2; 1, 4 and 8 p.m. November 4. The MATCH, 3400 Main. For information, call 713-521-4533 or visit Free.
