Word Play ~ 2011
The Hive Does Ives ~ April 22-23, 2011
Three short plays from comic mastermind, David Ives:
“Words, Words, Words,”: Three monkeys are caged under the experimental eye of Dr. Rosenbaum. His hypothesis is one echoing the infinite monkey theorem; a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text. In this case…HAMLET.
“The Philadelphia”: Two friends meet up for lunch one afternoon at a NYC cafe. As they converse, they slowly realize that one of them must have slipped into some kind of parallel dimension called a Philadelphia; a strange universe where everything is backwards and the service is always lousy.
“Variations On The Death Of Trotsky”: Russian Revolutionary leader Leon Trotsky is hard at work in his study with a mountain climber’s axe “jammed” into his skull. The only thing is…he doesn’t know it yet. With the help of an encyclopedia from the future and a few near life experiences, will Trotsky ever discover his true destiny?
BABY WITH THE BATHWATER by Christopher Durang ~ October 6-8, 2011
Feeling far too polite to check if their newborn child is a boy or girl, a nervous young couple finally decides that it’s a girl and they name her Daisy. A decision that could haunt Daisy for the rest of her life.
