Gypsy Stage Repertory Company presents Mere Mortals by David Ives on stage in Dunedin and St. Petersburg.
The show is coming to Dunedin Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 18-19, and Friday and Saturday, Jan. 24-25. In between, Gypsy Stage travels to St. Petersburg to present the show on Tuesday and Thursday, Jan. 21-23.
The critically acclaimed comedy, Mere Mortals, combines satire, wit, hilarity and intellect. Mere Mortals is six wild and whacky plays that deal with the issues of male-female relationships, dating and mating, mortality, literature, and man's desire to better himself through fantasy.

In David Ives' one-acts, anything can happen: A construction worker can be the Lindbergh baby, mayflies can ponder their mortality, and a Hispanic souvenir salesperson can turn into a German doctor in the blink of an eye. If you like fast-paced, quick-witted writing, you'll find Mere Mortals a very enjoyable evening of theater.
