A Masterpiece of Comic … Timing B-Street Theater Photo by Rudy Meyers

Sacramento’s local treasure, the B Street Theatre, will host a limited run of Robert Caisley’s new play A Masterpiece of Comic … Timing. The story takes place in the early ‘60s in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a producer is trying to hurriedly produce a comedy with the aide of a writer who has more than his fair share or hang-ups. “In this play, I have to say, shamefully, the only purpose of the comedy is to just make people wet their pants. I really want people to laugh,” said Caisley during a recent interview with Capital Public Radio. Caisley, a professor of theatre and head of dramatic writing at the University of Idaho, has written many plays which have been featured in residencies from coast to coast—from New Jersey to Washington state. A Masterpiece of Comic … Timing runs now through April 17, 2016. Showtimes are Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 5 and 9 p.m.; and 2 p.m. matinee on Wednesdays and Sundays. Buy tickets now at Bstreettheatre.org. -EJ
