“One of the zestier plates of theatrical tapas to be had.” – New York Times
Venus in Fur playwright David Ives is a very funny man, and in the 1990s wrote a series of short comedic plays, which are often performed together in an evening called All in the Timing (nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Best Play and winner of the Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Playwriting Award). These are the most performed plays in the USA after Shakespeare. And now they come to Prague.
Seven carefully curated plays explore how language defines and limits us, yet can be used to bridge the spaces between us. It’s a fast-paced comedy feast that makes you laugh while making you think. You’ll see:
• Chimpanzees attempting to write Hamlet
• Boy meets girl, again and again, and again
• A lesson in hidden social meanings in English
• Philip Glass buying a loaf of bread
• A man trapped in a city of the mind
• A woman finding her true voice through an artificial language
• How miniature golf can be like classical music
Plus live musical interludes. All in 90 minutes. It’s a quick, provocative evening with something for everyone. Includes two Czech Republic premieres.
Performed in English
