(Dallas, TX)

                     After a 23-year run at the Bath House Cultural Center and a 5-year pandemic related hiatus, the city's longest running, most beloved Festival returns... This time in a brand-new location! For the month of August FIT is taking over T3 to bring the city of Dallas its biggest and most exciting festival yet.

This year's lineup features a number of exciting projects, including an immersive, Spanish language play cycle about love, a heart pounding rock musical starring local leading man Gregory Lush, Tilda Grace’s movement based re-telling of a classic piece of literature, and the whirlwind, fever dream with a message Spank Bank Time Machine from self-described trauma clown, John Michael.

And that's just upstairs! The downstairs Theatre Too space sees local playwright Janae Hatchett shine a light on mental illness with New and Improving, while Jaymes Gregory examines the work of pop artist Daniel Johnston in Hi, How Are You? The Unfinished Show.  It's also the place to spend An Evening with Penis, presented by Pegasus Theatre and catch Man on Man, from the comedic mind of Jeff Swearingen.

Fans of cabaret will have plenty to love about Love is a Many Splintered Thing featuring Jodi Crawford Wright and I’m Literally Every Woman starring Sarah Powell, inspired by the now famous Barbie monologue. Also, local favorite Quintin Jones and Stede Bonnet star Laura Lyman Payne. On the Improv front, catch free late-night shows from Mama Tried, Dry Clean Only and The Imps!

All this plus a 70s/80s disco party for the whole community and a special mystery show sets this FIT up to be one of the very best everl!
