ALL IN THE TIMING by David Ives
Winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award! This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of six one-act comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. Sure Thing: A man and woman meet for the first time in a cafe, where their conversation is continually reset each time they say the wrong thing, until, finally, they connect. Words, Words, Words: Three chimpanzees attempt to write Hamlet. The Universal Language: A man and a woman fall in love while communicating in the invented language Unamunda. Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread: A musical parody of minimalist composer Philip Glass, in which he has an existential crisis in a bakery. The Philadeplphia: A man in a strange state where he must ask for the opposite of what he wants in a restaurant. Variations on the Death of Trotsky: Leon Trotsky dies, several times.
"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." -NY Times
