On the Map II, two separate evenings of original short works by local playwrights, will open May 6 and run for a month at the Fritz Theatre. The alternating programs are The Zhabotinsky Reactions by Judith Montague, directed by Cynthis Mitchell; and Strange Bedfellows by Tim West, directed by Christopher Wylie.
Montague's play deals with a group of research scientists forced to question their own motives when scientific ethics come into conflict with big business.
West's slate offers four short plays satirizing the American political science from FDR to Watergate and beyond.
For tickets and schedules call (619) 233-7505. The Fritz is located at 420 Third Ave. in the Gaslamp Quarter.
