An evening of one-act plays, Mere Mortals and Others, opened off-Broadway at Primary Stages in New York, May 13, 1997. The New York Times described it as “a collection of fast and ferociously funny comedies … a madcap evening of one-acts,” and noted that Ives has the “gratifying ability to unharness the intoxicating power of language and at the same time entertain.”

David Ives is an American playwright, screenwriter, and novelist that is best known for his short plays, writing verse adaptations of 17th century plays, and musicals adaptations for the New York City Center Encores! series. The New York Times has referred to him as “the maestro of the short form.”

“Ever since his wildly popular compendium of comedic playlets, All In the Timing, David Ives has attracted a following of audiences smitten with his dizzying sendups of famous and ordinary mortals.” -Curtain Up

“David Ives has devised a new batch of one-acters that offers an abundance of absurdities, played with freewheeling spunk.” -Variety
