Night of laughs presented at The SPACE

The SPACE is planning a night of laughs, featuring three very short funny plays by David Ives. This series of short plays is directed by three local directors and features six local actors playing eight hilarious characters.

"The Philadelphia" presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into "a Philadelphia," a Twilight-Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. His only way out of the dilemma? To ask for the opposite of what he wants.

"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?"

"Universal Language" brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a dazzling display of hysterical verbal pyrotechnics, and, of course, true love.

This production runs at The SPACE Oct. 9, 10, 16 and 17. Showtime at The SPACE is 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 each. To reserve your ticket contact The SPACE at 715-246-3180 or by visiting online at The SPACE is at 156 High St., New Richmond.
