ALL IN THE TIMING

Genre: Comedy
David Ives

 

To begin the Spring semester of the 2010-2011 Season, the York College Theatre present’s an evening of comic jems exploring the pleasures and perversities of contemporary life in ALL IN THE TIMING.

All In The Timingconsists of nine zany comedies all linked through the theme of time, communication and relationships. Playwright David Ives, a John Gassner Playwrighting Award winner, takes the audience on a veritable roller coaster of excitement and exploration. All in the Timing was the surprise comedy hit of the 1994 Off-Broadway theatre season in New York. Vincent Canby of the New York Times says the show is "like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue. The writing is not only very funny, but has the density of thought and precision of poetry. All In The Timing is by a master of fun. David Ives spins hilarity out of words."  This production contains adult language and situations, and is not recommended for very young audiences.

Under the direction of Professor Timothy J. Amrhein, this production will feature the evocative set designs of faculty member David T. Jones, built by York College students under the direction of CLT G. Lawrence Belcon.  It also features vivid lighting of guest designer, Daniel Winters.  CLT, Jessica Pecharsky, member of Actor’s Equity Association, rounds off the list as production/stage manager.
