The monthlong Festival of Independent Theatres, redundantly nicknamed FITfest, opens at the Bath House Cultural Center this weekend. Eight plays, each shorter than an hour, are performed in rotating repertory, Thursdays through Saturdays, over the next four weekends (July 13-August 4).

It's the fourteenth annual FIT, sponsored this year by the Performing Arts Initiative and the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs. Next summer's FITfest will be held in a month earlier, in June, to coincide with the national conference of the Theatre Communications Group, which will bring 1500 theatrical artists, administrators and board members from around the country to Dallas.
