An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man – with a lot of loose ends. “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” is a play about how we memorialize the dead, and how that remembering changes us. It is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
The cast includes Rainee Angles, Paula Campagna, Zanna Haines, Cheyra Harperee, Madison Hatfield, Bronwyn Jones, Andrew Marler, Eric Silcott, and Sam Stephenson. The production team includes Rainee Angles (director and production designer), Laura Martin (costumer), Benjamin Gullett (public relations), Micaela Countryman (choreographer), Shane Taylor (stage manager), and Matthew Waits (assistant stage manager). Fulfilling other crew positions are Brent Angles, Laura Bradley, Charlotte Brown, Brent Campagna, Noah Eaton, D.J. Griffith, and Melissa Griffith.
