FREE READ ✓ Time Flies and Other Short Plays Time Flies Degas C'Est Moi Dr Fritzthe Forces of Light Basel's in Arms Arabian Nights Enigma Variations the Mystery of Twicknam Vicarage A perfect washer should he tell his girlfriend; an out of work shmo decides to spend his day being painter Edgar Degas; two Babylonian blue collar workers have to build the Tower of Babel or else Zany thought provoking and always original this anthology brings together a Whereas I did enjoy several of these plays I can t give the book overall a higher review I m thinking that David Ives is not my style He is uite clever and several of his plays are very humorous but he adds unnecessary sexual content and profanity I think my favorites from this collection were Soap Opera and Arabian Nights
