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

While it is the world’s most popular tragedy, Hamlet is also a vigorous, thrilling adventure, telling the story of Prince Hamlet’s efforts to exact revenge on his uncle, who has murdered Hamlet’s father before taking the throne and marrying his mother. The play is famed for its layered, deeply developed characters, its roller-coaster plot, and its transcendent language.
“I’m thrilled that Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is producing Hamlet this summer,” said CSC Artistic Director Ian Gallanar, who is directing the show. “Many consider it to be Shakespeare’s greatest play and we’re hoping to bring our audiences a Hamlet that they will remember with excitement for years to come.” The title role will be played by CSC Associate Director Patrick Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick is a familiar face on CSC stages, having previously appeared as Romeo, Bottom, and Henry V, among others.
In addition to performances, Chesapeake Shakespeare Company In-The-Ruins features pre-show entertainment that includes musicians, jugglers and stage combat demonstrations to engage the many picnickers who arrive early to enjoy the sights and sounds at Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park. The gates open 90 minutes before show time for picnicking.
