Time Flies is a very cute and witty one-act play. Two mayflies meet at a
party and start falling in love, only to discover that they have just one day
to live. They find this out through watching the television show, Life on
Earth, narrated by the well-known host, Sir David Attenborough.
I chose this play because it is a fun comedy and it makes people laugh
at the absurdity of the whole story. On the other hand, if you really think
deeply about the inner themes of the play, you’ll notice that they aren’t
necessarily all fun and games. For me, the show also represents the fact
that life is short and that we need to live it to the fullest.
