Lucky seven: Short plays by David Ives

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Oh, to be young and in love and a mayfly — and learn, while on a great date, that you live for only one day, so your death is im­mi­nent. Such is the wry yet so­phis­ti­cated sense of hu­mor of play­wright David Ives. Cristina Duarte di­rects Santa Fe Univer­sity of Art and De­sign stu­dents in seven short plays by Ives, who is just as likely to write about con­struc­tion work­ers on their lunch break as he is the love lives of bugs. Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread; Long Ago and Far Away; Fore­play Or: The Art of the Fugue; Mere Mor­tals;Time Flies; It’s All Good; and English Made Sim­ple are per­formed at the Greer Gar­son The­atre (1600 St. Michael’s Drive) on Fri­day, Feb. 24, at 7 p.m., with ad­di­tional shows through March 4; show times are 7 p.m. on Fridays and Satur­days, 2 p.m. on Sun­day, Feb. 26. Tick­ets are $15, with dis­counts avail­able, and can be pur­chased from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org) and at the door.
