“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” Well, sure, but it’s winter, and who knows how you might have to deliver that Shakespearean sonnet. Join us for a night of lighthearted fun, as players and audience members are challenged to recite one of the Bard’s famous love sonnets under the most outlandish circumstances. Polish up your recitation skills and join TWN & NHA for an evening of Elizabethan merrymaking on a cold winter’s night.

It’s chilly outside, but when Theatre Workshop presents All in the Timing this winter, the theater will be filled with the warmth of laughter. This critically acclaimed, award-winning collection of one-act plays by American playwright David Ives combines wit, satire and intellect to produce lots of just plain fun. Join us for an evening of hilarity, brilliant language and wordplay—all used to investigate the classic existentialist questions of life and the complications of romantic relationships. It promises to be a blast—no monkeying around!

"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." New York 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."--New York Magazine
