The Dramatic Arts Program at San Diego City College will present six days of performances of the David Ives comedy play “Mere Mortals, a collection of hilarious and witty one-acts. 

“With the closure of campus in the fall semester, it took a bit of ingenuity to develop a theatre piece for performance, but the creativity and excitement of the students carried this process across many rehearsals — all over Zoom,” said a news release from City College.

All performances will be streamed online. Audience members can access the show anytime within a 24-hour period with a provided password.

The play will be streaming on Eventbrite from midnight to 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 29, 30, Nov. 1, 6, 7 and 8.
