The 'Ives' of March at Nutz-n-Boltz posted on 03/01/2021

Kelly Lazenby, Artistic Director of Boring’s Nutz-n-Boltz Theater Company (NNB), notes that the short plays by David Ives that will be performed as readings in March will appeal to people who are familiar with the culture of live theater.

“They’re very clever word plays, all of them,” she said. “There’s a bunch of homage to theater itself in each play. If you’ve been in theater before, understand where it’s coming from.”

Of course, even for those audience members who are theatrical novices will also enjoy them, thanks to Ives’ wit and humor. The performances, taken from his compendium “All in the Timing,” include plays that examine all the bad decisions on a first date, making up a language on the fly and three monkeys tasked with writing “Hamlet.”

Lazenby noted the performances will be readings, featuring actors with scripts in hand and minimal props. The theater has offered a number of these types of evenings in recent months, as they are more manageable to produce while adhering to COVID-19 restrictions.

“It's a good way to do something that doesn’t need a whole lot of preparation,” Lazenby said, adding that they also offer a chance for the performers to stretch their acting chops with some interesting characters.

She also noted the theater is limited to 20 percent capacity, but that they have been encouraged by seeing some new attendees for the recent shows.

Performances will take place with all necessary safety protocols in place, including seats spaced to allow for social distancing, sanitizing all seats between performances, hand sanitizer and staff wearing masks and gloves. If any performances are not allowed to go on, all prepaid tickets will be refunded in full.

The cast will include Ian Leiner, Justin Lazenby, Kim Berger, Tracey Grant, Kraig Williams and Kelly Lazenby.

NNB presents “All in the Timing” March 19-21 at the Boring Grange, 27861 Grange Street in Boring. Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, or to make reservations, call 503-593-1295 or visit nnbtheater.com.
