All in the Timing by David Ives is a series of six short one-act plays dealing with the nature of time. It was an interesting road that led me to this play. I had intended to direct several other plays before I chose this one; in fact, All in the Timing was chosen for it's workability in the given circumstances under which I was to direct: the Lubbock Summer Rep.

Lubbock Summer Rep consists of four shows played in a repertory sequence: a different show every night. Four directors are given four separate daily rehearsal tunes, and share one group of actors from which to select their casts. These actors also build the sets and work in the costume shop to help get the shows up and running. It is a total theatre experience. It is also a grueling, backbreaking, hectic three weeks in which to get your show together.
