THE REVIEWS

"ALL IN THE TIMING Widens the World!...

"Prodigious technical feat... awe inspiring..."

About the Director: "Director Meredith McMath has a talent for helping young actors discover and develop those human elements in ways that make you laugh and think at the same time, and that’s the kind of pleasure everyone should know about."

About the Venue: Driving the dark, winding roads between my house and Grandale Farm, where Run Rabbit Run stages many of tits shows, felt like searching the back country for an off-the grid theater hidden in somebody's barn. That was about right. When I found it, a doorman addmitted me into a secret world of light and large wine glasses, where congnoscenti gathere to laugh and drink and wtach young actors hone their craft."

— Mark Dewey, Editor, Shenandoah Press

The Show: "Highly recommended... wonderfully written, well executed and acted. The comfortable small-venue setting of Grandale Farm lent itself perfectly to the level of audience intimacy expected of the script."

Run Rabbit Run Dinner Theate's unique staging is based on the revolving "periaktoi" of ancient Greek theatre. The artwork on the column panels seen in this production were designed by Laney Oxman, Meredith Bean McMath and Glenn Milich.

This versatile revolving set design was engineered by Lorenzo Bean, III.  The entire cast was involved in finalizing this arrangement, and special thanks goes to Garrett Milich and Kaitlin McClung for additional technical assistance, advice and sweat equity.

Four David Ives' Plays from

ALL IN THE TIMING:

 

THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE

Don is teaching a ridiculous language called "Unamunda" to a young woman with a stutter. The verbal pyrotechnics that follow end in — what else? — true love! (With Christopher Saunders as Don, Emily Hyland as Dawn, and Ben Huntington as the Young Man).

 

THE PHILADELPHIA

A young man in a restaurant finds out he's in a twilight-zone called "a Philadelphia," where he can't get anything unless he asks for the opposite, and what's more opposite than the opposite sex? (with Garrett Milich as Al, Ben Huntington and Mark, and Kaitlin McClung as Sharon)

 

VARIATIONS ON THE DEATH OF TROTSKY

Leon Trotsky continually discovers the novel fact that he has an axe in his head

(With Christopher Saunders as Trotsky, Amy Blair as Natalia Trotsky and Ben Huntington as Ramon Mercader).

 

SURE THING

Boy meets girl until-he-gets-it-right story — a conversational shooting arcade on the Midway of Love (With Garrett Milich as Bill and Erica Miller as Betty).

 

And all brought to you by one very unusual Show Host

named CYTHEREA! (played by KC Burke)
