Ives’ Shorts is a collection of six witty and wildly original one-acts by playwright David Ives, teeming with hilarious characters pondering life’s metaphysical questions… just like you! In these plays, a washing machine repairman falls in love with a perfect washer; two Babylonian blue-collar workers have to build the Tower of Babel; an American tourist in pain seeks medical help from a wacky souvenir seller; and more!
