"I've spent so much of my life asking for the wrong thing without knowing it, doing it on purpose comes easy."
- David Ives, All In The Timing
Featuring four diverse but equally hysterical one-act comedies, David Ives' All in the Timing is a witty, romantic, absurd, and existentially-minded evening of theatre. In Sure Thing, a couple on a first date has the opportunity to reset and try again each time they say the wrong thing. Words, Words, Words takes the infinite monkey theorem-- the idea that given enough time, three monkeys in a room could eventually compose any given text, including Shakespeares Hamlet -- and turns it into reality. In The Philadelphia, a man discovers that he's entered a strange pocket of the universe where the only way to get what he wants is to ask for the opposite. Finally, in Variations on the Death of Leon Trotsky, the audience is treated to the hilarious vision of the famous Marxist waxing poetical -- and dying, over and over and over again. Plus, we have added a bonus production of The Fifteen Minute Hamlet, which is a comedic abridgement of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, written by Tom Stoppard.
