The world according to David Ives is a very odd place, and his plays constitute a virtual stress test of the English language — and of the audience’s capacity for disorientation and delight. The short plays are almost all comedies (or comedy-dramas), focusing mainly on language and wordplay, existentialist perspectives on life and meaning, and the complications involved in romantic relationships.

They Turn Somersaults
by Aleksei Arbuzov,translated by Ariadne Nicolaeff
Rodion is the medical head of a sanatorium where Lidya is a patient, suffering from arteriosclerosis. They first meet following complaints from other patients of her habit of reciting poetry in the middle of the night and singing at dawn. She is clearly no ordinary patient. The play follows, with warmth and gentle humor, the mutual growth of interest and liking, to lasting affection.
