    ALL IN THE TIMING is a collection of short comic one-act plays by David Ives, author of Venus in Fur and acclaimed translations of classic French comedies including The Liar, The Heir Apparent and The School for Lies. Known as “the master of the short form,” Ives’ one-act plays are quick, quirky, diverse, and extremely clever.

    ALL IN THE TIMING will include these short plays:

    “Sure Thing”: A man and a woman discover rewind time and navigate conversational potholes on the road to romance.

    “Words Words Words”: Three chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka, armed with typewriters and bananas, may or may not have infinite time to create Hamlet.

    “The Universal Language”: Don, an enthusiastic creator of a universal language, meets his first student, the shy and awkward Dawn. Magic ensues.

    “Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread”: is a parodic musical vignette in trademark Glassian style, with the celebrated composer having an existential crisis in a bakery.

    “The Philadelphia”: A man in a diner discovers that he can never get what he wants, because he is stuck in a black hole called … the Philadelphia.

    “Variations on the Death of Trotsky”: Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky wakes up (again and again) with a mountain climber’s axe smashed into his skull. Who did it? His wife? A political enemy? Or the mysterious gardener?

    Our goal is to cast a high-powered, tight-knit ensemble of 5 actors (most likely 3 M, 2 F) to play all of the roles. While we are open to change if circumstances permit, our vision is to have one man and one woman (20’s-early 40’s) play opposite each other in “The Universal Language” and “Sure Thing”, while the other three actors (any age) take the lead roles in “Words Words Words”, “The Philadelphia”, and “Variations on the Death of Trotsky.”

    The most important elements we will look for are energy, versatility, and comic timing.
