Review eight plays in 150 words? Impossible! Briefly review one fabulous evening of theatre which just happened to be made up of eight plays? No problem! For the second year, Lions Den Theatre has produced a directors’ showcase comprised of short plays by wordsmith extraordinaire David Ives. Ives’ plays require quick transitions and impeccable comic timing, and this production nails both requirements. (Mike Chandler aids the transitions with his clever ditties and bonhomie.)The most miraculous thing about this show is that it involves eight directors and more than 20 actors, and there is literally not a weak link in the lot. If you find it hard to believe that one show can be intelligent, charming, thought-provoking, side-splittingly funny, moving (Yes, I was genuinely moved by Variations on the Death of Trotsky) and above all, totally entertaining, An Evening of Ives will prove you wrong.
