Walking the dog Theater returns for its sixth season at PS21, Chatham, with an evening of comedic short plays by contemporary American playwright David Ives. His plays’ verbal dexterity, theatrical invention, and quirky humor have made him popular with audiences and critics alike. His full-length play Venus in Fur recently had an award-winning run on Broadway.
The evening’s program includes:
LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY, a domestic drama of a troubled young wife who finds herself crossing through time – and identities – on a fateful winter evening in an empty apartment.
A SINGULAR KIND OF GUY, about a young guy who finally figures out who he really is, just in time to meet someone who might be his perfect complement.
DR FRITZ or, The Forces of Light, a metaphysical examination of God and Sigmund Freud, based on a story Ives read in the New York Times.
DEGAS C’EST MOI, the story of an unemployed drifter who decides to spend his day being painter Edgar Degas.
ARABIAN NIGHTS, the story of utterly normal Norman who walks into utterly ordinary Flora’s shop looking for a souvenir of his travels and together they find whirlwind romance, spurred on by a wacky translator.
Plus two other surprise short comedies…
