|"David Ives' short plays, ably directed by Daniel Henning, James Kerwin and Darin Anthony, take a light-hearted look at contemporary cultural icons and quirky urban folkways."
"The directors of these one-acts have their tongues firmly in their cheeks, correctly playing each piece dead serious, the only way comedy can work... Mere Mortals [is] directed with deadpan macho earnestness by James Kerwin."
-Back Stage Magazine
"Impeccably staged. This original anthology of six short comedies for the thinking person showcases Ives' genius. If theatrical excellence really is 'all in the timing,' this chance to indulge in acid-free laughter without dumbing down our critical faculties could not be more opportune."
