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
