Atlantic Stage Opens Season Six with Award Winning Comedic One-Acts

All in the Timing by David Ives opens another season at Atlantic Stage.   All in the Timing is a critically acclaimed, award winning evening of six one-act comedies that NY Times describes as, “…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.”

The cast consists of four talented actors including Atlantic Stage Artistic Director, Thom Penn, actor’s equity, Atlantic Stage company member, Mindi Penn, Jason Adams (previously seen last season in Child’s Play), and AS newcomer, Erin Dooley.   The comedic timing of the show is brought together under the direction of company member Kristi Rau McIntyre.

All in the Timing takes the audience into everyday, relatable, circumstances that everyone has dealt with.  In each act a bell ringing is the chance for the character to repeat the scene with a new approach.   “It gives the characters the opportunity to have the do-over we wish we would’ve had,” says Penn relating the scenario to that second chance many people wish for.

The laughter begins with a preview on Thursday, September 19 and opening night celebrations will take place on Friday, September 20 with a wine and cheese reception following the show.   The laughter continues through October 13, giving everyone an added week to see the show!  In addition to a fourth week, $10 budget friendly side seats are available.   Also new this season is the addition of handrails in the center section stairs and the side sections.
