Lives of the Saints, a new series of short plays by David Ives, will have its world premiere at The Duke on 42nd Street from February 3-March 27 in a Primary Stages production. John Rando directs the work, after helming Ives' All in the Timing in 2013.

"Lives of the Saints marks our seventh production of David Ives’ work," says Primary Stages Artistic Director Andrew Leynse. "This collection of short plays, including three new pieces, is a mixture of humor, intellect, and farce and is a transformative step in Mr. Ives’ mastery of the one-act form. We are thrilled to be working again with David and his long-time collaborator, director John Rando."

Lives of the Saints will include Arnie Burton (Peter and the Starcatcher), Carson Elrod (All in the Timing), Rick Holmes (The Threepenny Opera), Kelly Hutchinson (Desire Under the Elms), and Liv Rooth (All in the Timing).

The production will feature scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Anita Yavich, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design and original music by John Gromada, and wig design by Tom Watson.
