If you can’t stand the heat, get into the air conditioning. The Ohio Theater’s Ice Factory used to be something of a misnomer—with just a few ceiling fans for cooling the cavernous Wooster Street space, this festival was among the city’s steamiest. But the Ice Factory has since decamped farther west to the New Ohio, and while the temperature is now much more moderate, the lineup isn’t any less scorching. This summer’s offerings includes The Assembly’s That Poor Dream, set on a Metro-North train and based upon Great Expectations; The Mad Ones’ Untitled Biopic Project, about ’60s folkies; Built for Collapse’s Red Wednesday, centering on the Iranian Hostage Crisis; and Anonymous Ensemble’s atoll-set I Land.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m. Starts: June 26. Continues through June 29, 2013
