All in the Timing

Written by David Ives
Directed by J. Daniel Herring
Streaming June 4 - 12, 2021

Featuring six 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 Shakespeare’s Hamlet -- and turns it into reality. In "The Universal Language", a shy young woman places her faith in her fraudulent language tutor, who is changed for the better when he discovers is the language they share: not the the made-up “Unamunda” professes to be fluent in, but rather the language of love. "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread" is an existential mini-musical parody based on the work of composer Philip Glass. 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.

The cast includes Santiago Batista, Lexie Castellanos, Nicole Faulconer, Reese Jade Herron, Duncan Hoge, Cassidy LeClair, Rachel Maciel, Ethan Magill, Sofia Sabine McCurry,  Andrew Mickelson, Dylan Mark Murphy, Tyler Murphy, Luke R. Nothstein, Julia Prieto, Carlos Sanchez, and Andy Souk
