‘All in the Timing’ Presented by Clarke University

April 6, 2016: Clarke University’s final drama production of the school year, “All in the Timing,” will be performed April 21-24 in Terrence Donahue Hall. Showings Thursday through Saturday begin at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday’s showing begins at 2 p.m.

“All in the Timing” is a collection of six one-act plays written by David Ives. Each individual play provides clever entertainment for the audience through comedic phrasing and wordplay.

“Audiences will be treated to an evening of witty and satirical comedy,” said Clarke Assistant Professor of Drama Nicholas Halder, who is directing the play. “David Ives carefully constructed these six one-acts that suspend time, while creating comedic patterns and punch lines that all will enjoy.”

The six one-acts, with the student performers, are as follows:

  ·  Sure Thing – Evan Heil of Dubuque; Amber Mitchell of Chicago.

  ·  Words, Words, Words – William Schwalb of Dubuque; Anna Kluesner of Epworth, Iowa; Fernanda Carrasco of Chicago.

  ·  The Universal Language – Lily Rottinghaus of Jesup, Iowa; Evan Heil of Dubuque; Mason Jaeger of Dubuque.

  ·  Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread – Anna Kluesner of Epworth, Iowa; Julie Heater of Mount Pleasant, Iowa; Evan Heil of Dubuque; William Schwalb of Dubuque.

  ·  The Philadelphia – Mason Jaeger of Dubuque; Jamese Kane of Chicago; Riley Beckett of Antioch, Ill.

  ·  Variations on the Death of Trotsky – William Schwalb of Dubuque; Brenna Burgart of New Hampton, Iowa.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for senior citizens, and $5 for non-Clarke students.
