Mere Mortals: Six Short Plays

written by David Ives

directed by Lucas Brooks

A self-styled Don Juan encounters his future selves on a date. Three construction workers share increasingly amazing secrets 50 stories over the street. Two lonely but sweet young mayflies meet at a pond. A crash course on David Mamet. An American tourist in pain seeks medical help from a wacky souvenir seller named Maria. A man wakes up one morning and decides to be the French artist Degas. These are the stories shared by David Ives in his collection of one-acts.
