ALL IN THE TIMING is a collection of short, comedic plays by David Ives. We will be presenting three of these plays as a one-act show.

THE PHILADELPHIA: This play presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into “a Philadelphia,” a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for.

SURE THING: Two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas on the way to falling in love.

WORDS, WORDS, WORDS: This play recalls the philosophical adage that three monkeys typing into infinity will sooner or later produce Hamlet and asks: What would monkeys talk about at their typewriters?


I have loved All in the Timing ever since I first encountered it more than a decade ago. I am so excited to get to bring a few of these hysterical scripts to life at Four County, especially in a time when we all really need a laugh.

I am looking for actors who are not afraid to make bold choices, work hard, and be flexible during a somewhat unpredictable process. Actors auditioning should be aware that they will need to be self-motivated and dedicated to the process as the first few weeks of rehearsal will take place via video chat. Working from home will pose different challenges from those of the typical rehearsal process. Despite these challenges, I am looking forward to making art again, and I hope you will share this excitement and audition!

Director Anna Grey Hogan is looking for a strong, diverse cast of three actors of any race or gender identity to play the characters in these three short plays. Actors must be 16 or older to audition. Ability and willingness to socially distance and stay home throughout the rehearsal period is a plus.
