Edmonds Driftwood Players has selected eight short plays for its eighth annual Festival of Shorts.

The theme of this year's festival is "Unintended Consequences".

The theater received more than 400 submissions from around the world.

The selection committee chose finalists through blind readings. The never-before-produced shorts will make their debut on the stage July 7-9 at the Wade James Theater in Edmonds.

Performances are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
