Murder, Mayhem, and Monkeys...An Evening with David Ives: Round House Theatre presents the 11th Annual Sarah Play - the only play produced by a regional theatre that is directed, designed, and performed entirely by high school students.

If a bell rang every time you said the wrong thing, would every conversation be a sure thing? Do monkeys get writers block? How do you escape a Philadelphia? The answers to these and other questions of contemporary life can be found in an evening of sparkling one acts by David Ives ? The Philadelphia; Words, Words, Words; Sure Thing; and The Mystery at Twicknam Vicarage. In this comedy of verbal gymnastics, language is a springboard to the infinite possibilities of life.
