All in the Time -,
This review is from: All in the Timing: Fourteen Plays (Paperback)
David Ives truly is a genius of the postmodern one-act theatre (a form which suffers immensely from neglect and hasty execution), with his *dings* and his voiceovers, and his catchy repartee with the occasional pun.
However, directors should bear in mind that his plays, while extremely funny and original, do tend to lend themselves to possibly static blocking. Also, he's dull when he writes full-length - no timing there at all. He does employ "potty"-humour/language on occasion, which works perhaps a third of the time, but otherwise is merely banal.
However, those searching for one-act plays would do well to give David Ives a gander, as well as those who enjoy a little bit of post-modern humour.
