The 20th annual Festival of Independent Theatres features eight shows from established and newer companies. Organizations, shows and descriptions are below. The grid schedule is below that.


Camp Death Productions

Jimmy Pine

By Ben Schroth

A bleak, dystopian retelling of the classic Pinocchio tale, Camp Death, known for their late-night horror movie spoofs at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre, promise a production that is provocative, compelling and full of the off-beat, wicked sense of humor that has made Ben Schroth one of DFW’s most popular local playwrights.


Danielle Georgiou Dance Group

Just Girly Things

By Danielle Georgiou, Justin Locklear, Ruben Carrazana, Trey Pendergrass and Cory Kosel

Danielle Georgiou brings her distinct movement style back to FIT for a second piece exploring gender relations. Backing up her 2015 FIT hit, The Show About Men, this year’s entry focusses on the stories of and struggles faced by women. DGDG promises toe-tapping music, side splitting humor and more than a healthy dose of thoughtful introspection in this season’s Just Girly Things.


Eccentric Bear Productions

The Book of Gabe

By Isaac Young

Eccentric Bear makes its local debut with this irreverent, yet thoughtful piece about God’s favorite archangel.  Local clowning talent Isaac Young brings a fresh perspective and an impeccable performance ability to this wry and witty treasure that upends everything you thought you knew about religion.


Echo Theatre

Bible Women

By Elizabeth Swados and Vicki Caroline Cheatwood

A haunting and thoughtful song cycle that takes the most interesting characters from some of the greatest stories ever told and spins them afresh for modern audiences.  Making a return appearance by popular demand, this year’s production of Bible Women features new and improved material and will be headlined by local cabaret diva Denise Lee.


Imprint Theatreworks


By Devin Berg

Wrath turns to empathy turns to desire turns to love in this in this brutal comedy about friendship, fate, and the tendency of life to pass us by. A fast-paced, contemporary look at the danger of complacency and the beautiful imperfection of life.


Laughter League

Where Do I Sit?

By Dick Monday

Dick Monday and Tiffany Riley (of NY Goofs fame) bring a healthy dose of laughter and merriment to this year’s festival with the delightful clowning story, Where Do I Sit? Armed with decades of clowning experience from performances around the world, seeing these masters of their craft in action will be a treat, not to be missed.


Prism Movement Theater

BruNO and lOUIe

By Jeffrey Colangelo

A rollicking fantasy about two mimes who want to become famous, BruNO and lOUIe turns traditional clowning on its head with this creatively stylized production that promises to make something from nothing. A fun-filled romp sure to entertain and delight with its playful look into the power of imagination.


WingSpan Theatre Company 


by Harold Pinter

Somewhere between here and elsewhere Beth and Duff are battling the shifting sands of time and trying to repair their estranged relationship. Bit by bit this haunting duet unfolds the mysteries of their shared past and asks if it’s possible for the two lovers to bridge the physical and emotional chasm between them.
