The Vienna Woods Players are preparing a comedic evening of four short, adult themed plays by David Ives, American playwright, screenwriter and novelist, called “ All In The Timing”:
“Lives of the Saints” features two women preparing a funeral breakfast in a church basement who muse on life, death, and the meaning of Polish jokes and along the way achieve a kind of sanctity.
“English Made Simple” feature a young couple who meet at a party, and their immediate romantic attraction is translated into comically unromantic grammar lessons as they struggle to free themselves from the banal constrictions of party talk.
“Words, Words, Words” recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: what would monkeys talk about at their typewriters?
“Sure Thing” features two people who meet at a café and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas on the way to falling in love.
The Vienna Woods Players are based at the Union Hall at 5 Vienna Road, Vienna, ME, contributing to a century’s old tradition of theater, music, dance in the hall.
Performances will be at 7:00 p.m. on July 14, 15, and 16 with an additional matinee Saturday at 2:00.
The Union Hall requests attendees be COVID vaccinated and masked.
Due to adult language, a mature audience is recommended. As seating is limited, reservations are recommended by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org The price of tickets is a generous donation determined by the patron.
