Pieces:

The Universal Language – David Ives
1 M, 1 W (Mid 20’s to 40’s), 1 M (walk on at end)
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
2 M, 1 W (20’s and up)
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
2 M, 1W (any ages), 1 W (walk on at end)
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
1 M (20’s-30’s who can play 17-18 teenager)
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
2 M, 1 W (20’s to 40’s)
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
2 M, 3 W (30’s to 60’s)
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.
