November 5, 2010 (El Cajon) -- Grossmont College Theatre Arts Department will present Time Flies and Other Short Plays by David Ives, directed by Beth Duggan. Performances will be in the Stagehouse Theatre on December 2-4 and 8-11 at 7:30 p.m. as well as matinees on December 4 and 11 at 2 p.m.


A press release issued by Grossmont states, “Don’t miss this collection of witty and wildly original one-acts teeming with hilarious characters pondering life’s metaphysical questions."


Two mayflies on a date realize that they have a mere twenty-four hours to live and decide to seize life completely; two Babylonian blue-collar workers have to build the Tower of Babel; three chimps are locked in a room and made to re-create Hamlet; and two women fashion a funeral breakfast out of thin air.


“David Ives (is) perhaps the funniest writer of short plays in America today.”—The Columbus Dispatch.
