If Strindberg wrote for SNL, or Mamet worked on MADtv, you might get a whiff of the wordplay, a smidge of the smarts that stuffs All In The Timing, a hilarious half dozen one-acts by playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur). Talking monkeys, people transported to another dimension, a language that will unite the world and even a famous composer buying bread -- these are but a few of the delicious set-ups to Ives' remarkable storytelling. Written between 1987 and 1993, each of the six plays has been rehearsed by a different director, creating a piece where you never know what will happen next. Don't miss this award-winning sextet of comedies that combine wit, intellect, satire and fun at the Rice Auditorium. See event description for more details. Learn More

Entertaining, moving and engaging. Everything came together in the second act. The story was a highlight of what the breakdown of a family can do to men. The stage is a literally a tenement and the setting fittingly showed what a lack of a strong family foundation, lack of education (regardless of drive and skill) can do towards aspirations and limitations. The characters were steeped with history and even the naming of the two characters demonstrated a sort of self fulfilling devolution.
This show contains violence and strong language.
