David Ives returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where his play School for Lies (adapted from Molière) and his version of Feydeau’s A Flea in Her Ear have been staged. Mr. Ives was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play for Venus In Fur, which has been produced all over the country and the world, and was turned into a film by Roman Polanski. He is also well known for his evenings of one-act comedies, All in the Timing and Time Flies. Mr. Ives’ other plays include: New Jerusalem: The Interrogation of Baruch de Spinoza; The Liar (adapted from Corneille); The Metromaniacs (adapted from Alexis Piron); Is He Dead? (adapted from Mark Twain); Ancient History, and Polish Joke. A Chicago native, Mr. Ives lives in New York City.
