All in the Timing: Fourteen Plays

David Ives

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

The world according to David Ives is a very add place, and his plays constitute a virtual stress test of the English language — and of the audience's capacity for disorientation and delight. Ives's characters plunge into black holes called " Philadelphias, " where the simplest desires are hilariously thwarted. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to re-create Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in a dubious language in which " hello" translates as " velcro" and " fraud" comes out as " freud."At once enchanting and perplexing, incisively intelligent and side-splittingly funny, this original paperback edition of Ives's plays includes " Sure Thing, " " Words, Words, Words, " " The Universal Language, " " Variations on the Death of Trotsky, " " The Philadelphia, " " Long Ago and Far Away, " " Foreplay, or The Art of the Fugue, " " Seven Menus, " " Mortals, " " English Made Simple, " " A Singular Kinda Guy, " " Speed-the-Play, " " Ancient History, " and " Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread."
