Winner of the John Gassner Playwriting Award. This critically acclaimed, award-winning evening of comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. A hilarious sextet whether played together or separately. "Like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue. The writing is not only very funny, it has density of thought and precision of poetry...ALL IN THE TIMING is by a master of fun. David Ives spins hilarity out of words." -NY Times. "Theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart. Ives is a mordant comic who has put the 'play' back in playwright...A wondrous word master." -Time Magazine. "An original turn of mind is to be saluted in our tired theatre...A playwright with ideas, his own ideas, in his head is relatively rare. Such a one is David Ives." -NY Magazine.
