All in the Timing

By College of the Sequoias Box Office (other events)

3 Dates Through May 09, 2021

ALL IN THE TIMING is a hilarious (and even touching) series of one-act comedies by playwright David Ives that combines wit, intellect, satire, romance, and just plain fun.

This production will feature five one-act plays:

  • SURE THING follows two people, who meet in a café, as they wind their way through a conversational minefield on the way to falling in love.
  • WORDS, WORDS, WORDS recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: What would monkeys talk about at their typewriters?
  • THE PHILADELPHIA follows a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into “a Philadelphia,” a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for.
  • THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE examines a speech lesson between Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of ‘Unamunda’, a wild comic language, as they navigate their way through a dazzling display of verbal pyrotechnics.
  • VARIATIONS ON THE DEATH OF TROTSKY shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s discovered in his head.
