JESSICA PFEIFFER & BRYAN MURRAY

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 production of Ives’s plays includes “Sure Thing,” “Words, Words, Words,” “The Universal Language,” “Variations on the Death of Trotsky,” “The Philadelphia,” and “Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread.”

“Theater that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart…Ives is a mordant comic who has put the play back in playwright.” — Time
