The company of student and community actors and crew at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County will present “Time Flies” by David Ives.

“Ives’ plays are zany, thought-provoking and always original, and these are six of his funniest,” said faculty member Damian Ernest, the director of the UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County spring 2022 production of “Time Flies,” which collects six one-act plays by Ives, who the New Yorker magazine has called the “maestro of the short form.”  The production runs in the campus’ R.G. Brown theater, Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 24 at 2 p.m.

Ernest describes the six short vignettes, presented in two acts, as innovative and deceptively wise, but most essentially full of humor and laughs.  

“If you agree it is better to laugh than cry, you are in for a rare and blissful evening,” said Ernest. “Over-the-top doesn’t begin to describe it.”

The play deals with mature themes in mature language, and is not for children. Advance tickets are available from the University Box Office at, and will also be available at the door. General Admission is $12 and student tickets are $5.
