This Spring, it’s your chance to Take Time Out. Way Out, that is. Inside-Out. Out-There Out. Time to leave Time…and Reality…completely behind. And enter another dimension in space and time. A delightfully demented dimension. As six absurd and hilarious short plays come together on the same bill. It’s the David Ives Festival. Presented April 24 - May 3 by Northern Cincinnati’s award-winning, and oldest, theatre company, Mason Community Players.
Imagine a romantic evening between two frantic mayflies, trying to live a lifetime in one day. Or monkeys at typewriters trying to compose the works of Shakespeare. Two buddies realizing they’ve temporarily entered a parallel Bizarro-World. A minimalist, repetition-crazed modern composer living his daily life, visiting a bakery. Co-workers revealing their secret and shocking past lives. A determined pick-up artist getting a free “do-over” every time he strikes out. Six time-bending comedies. Six times silly. Six times fun.
