With humor and grace, the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives.

All In the Timing by David Ives

All In the Timing is a set of short plays written by David Ives. When first produced Off Broadway at Primary Stages in 1993, the writing was praised by critics as both highly imaginative and magically funny.” A description of Ives’ writing by the New York Times states that “In the world of David Ives, situations float at the far edge of the social map and quickly drift off into uncharted territory.” His work contains wildly imaginative takes on the complications of interpersonal relationships and the nature of meaning in human existence, all wrapped in comic wordplay and comic situations. Mr. Ives is an award winning playwright and a master of comic writing for the contemporary theatre.
