Description

Directed by Kate Aronson, "All in the Timing" is a collection of five short, contemporary comic plays written by David Ives whom Time magazine has called “a wondrous wordmaster” and “a mordant comic who puts the play back in playwright.” This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines satire, wit, and intelligent, quirky humor to produce what the Washington Post called “Lewis Carroll meets the Marx Brothers at a party catered by James Joyce.” The five plays explore themes like the complications one encounters in romantic relationships ("Sure Thing," where a couple’s first meeting is played out over and over again with varying results), to a satirical take on an historical event ("Variations on the Death of Trotsky), to existential perspectives on life ("Words, Words, Words," in which three chimpanzees with three typewriters, in a scientific experiment, are expected to produce "Hamlet").
