David Ives' "All in the Timing" will be performed March 4-6 by the Maryville College Theater Department.

Performances begin at 8 p.m. in the theater of the Wilson Chapel/Theatre Complex on campus.

Ives' "All in the Timing" is a series of 14 contemporary, quirky, one-act plays, but only six have been chosen for performance on the MC stage this spring: Sure Thing; Words, Words, Words; The Universal Language; Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread; The Philadelphia and Variations on the Death of Trotsky . The six plays share a common theme, according to Dr. Heather McMahon, visiting assistant professor of theatre.

"The plays are a fun play on language and time," McMahon said. "They all deal with the human condition of feeling trapped. Some of the characters are trapped in time, others are trapped in love."

Since the performance includes six separate plays, there are 17 students included in the cast.

Dustin Norwood, a senior music major, composed the score for the vignette " Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread," a parodic musical in trademark Glassian style, with the celebrated composer having a moment of crisis in a bakery.

Tickets are available at the door at $7.50 for adults and $5 for seniors, MC faculty and staff, theater alumni and high school/college students. MC students are admitted free.

Because the play includes strong language and adult themes, it is not recommended for children under the age of 13.
