JOPLIN, MO – The play Dead Man’s Cell Phone, written by Sarah Ruhl will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31 – Feb. 4 in the Bud Walton Black Box Theatre at Missouri Southern State University.
Senior Theatre major Kayla Curran directs this wildly imaginative new comedy.
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. A play about how we memorialize the dead, and how that remembering changes us. This 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.
Admission is free for MSSU students, faculty and staff, $3 for adults and $1 for senior citizens and non-MSSU students.
The Southern Theatre box office opens on Monday, Monday Jan. 23, 2012. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. For reservations, call the MSSU Box Office at (417) 625-3190.
