All In The Timing by David Ives
Theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart!
David Ives’ All In The Timing is a critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of quirky comedies that combine wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. These six highly diverse but equally hysterical playlets are unlike any program of one-acts you’ve ever seen and make for an entertaining evening of theatre at its most unique.
The world according to David Ives is a very odd place, and his plays constitute a virtual stress test of the English language — and of the audience’s capacity for disorientation and delight. Ives’s characters plunge into black holes called “Philadelphias,” where the simplest desires are hilariously thwarted. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to re-create Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in a dubious language in which “hello” translates as “velcro” and “fraud” comes out as “freud.”
“Like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue. The writing is not only very funny, it has density of thought and precision of poetry… All In The Timing is by a master of fun. David Ives spins hilarity out of words.” — The New York Times.
