Primary Stages presents this collection of short plays by David Ives, a master of the form.
A sample of the plays:
'Enigma Variations': Hijinks ensue as a pair of lookalikes solve an identity crisis with the help of a doctor and his nurse, who might be Aphrodite.
'The Mystery at Twicknam Vicarage': A body on the carpet, three ridiculous suspects and a bumbling Scotland Yard detective solve philosophical quandaries as they investigate.
'Babel's in Arms': Two blue-collar Mesopotamian construction workers are handed a provocative task: Build the Tower of Babel—or else.
'Soap Opera': A washing-machine repairman falls in love with a picture-perfect washer. Is the washer two-timing him with a dryer?
