What do they have in common?
Besides being award-winning playwrights, this season's festival features a collection of one acts by each of them which are...wait for it...quirky, quick and hilarious. –Rated Adult
The Universal Language – David Ives
Learning a universal language brings together a young woman with a stutter and the creator and teacher of Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a dazzling display of hysterical verbal pyrotechnics – and, of course, the possibility of love.
Words, Words, Words – David Ives
Recall the physical adage that monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce “Hamlet”, and then ask: What would monkeys talk about at their typewriters?
St. Francis Talks to the Birds – David Ives
A comic excursion into death and dying in which the holy man meets a couple of desert vultures waiting to turn him into dessert.
Moby-Dude, or: The Three-Minute Whale – David Ives
A stoned-out surfer dude summarizes Melville’s classic for his skeptical high-school teacher in a high-speed monologue. Bodaciously tubular, man!
Crazy Eights – David Lindsay-Abaire
When Connie comes home late one night, she finds her parole officer waiting in her apartment with a….torte….and a long list of questions. The interrogation (which turns into a courting dance) that follows gets complicated by the after-hours arrival of a friend of Connie’s.
That Other Person – David Lindsay-Abaire
Tonight is the night Ginge and Kevin are going to tell their respective spouses the marriage-shattering secret they’ve been keeping from everyone. But their bombshell gets put on the back burner when a lovely peeping-tom, with secrets of her own, falls in the pool and nearly drowns.
