Vinettes feature hospital boards rapping about pharmaceuticals, power-mad surgeons seeking to defeat death, family members visiting their sick relatives and last good byes.

Time/Bomb made its debut in Nov. 1998 at the Ohio Theatre. Other works by Collision Theory include SexWork and The Hungry Girls -- A Fairy Tale. Their Incorporated: A Cinderella Story will premiere at HERE in Feb. 2000.

Tickets are $11 and can be reserved by calling (212) 420-8877 or (888) FringeNYC. The Harry De Jur Playhouse at the Henry Street Settlement is located at 466 Grand Street at Pitt Street. The New York Fringe Festival is on the internet at http://www.fringenyc.org.
