Clock Productions leavens these eerie vignettes with tongue-in-cheek humor and surprise. "A Tale of Irony" concerns two English schoolgirls whose circuitous discussion of infinity brings them to a dangerous reality. Later on, in "A Tale of Deception," a narcissistic man tries to stay young forever only to be duped by the Devil himself. Complemented by a gothic set and some frightening props, David Denman's production marries gloom and doom with just the right amount of ribald comedy. Watch out for flying swords, masked villains, and the occasional severed head. --Marissa Oberlander
