All in the Timing
by David Ives
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.
