Summary (From the publisher):

Two mayflies on a date realize they have only twenty-four hours to live and decide to seize life completely - if only they knew how. So begins Time Flies and Other Short Plays, a collection of thirteen witty and wildly original one-acts teeming with hilarious characters pondering life's metaphysical questions. In these plays, a washing-machine repairman falls in love with a perfect washer (should he tell his girlfriend?); two Babylonian blue-collar workers have to build the Tower of Babel; a man decides to become the painter Edgar Degas for a day; and two women fashion a Polish-American funeral breakfast out of nothing.
