This December, the UC Davis Department of Theater & Dance's Institute for Exploration in Theater, Dance, and Performance presents Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cell Phone. The play tells the story of Jean, a woman who comes into possession of a dead man's cell phone. She soon begins answering his calls and becomes entwined in his life. She takes it upon herself to preserve the dead man's memory, even though she never knew him. It's a play about death and life, love and isolation, data and memories, embossed invitations, missed calls, kidneys, and lentil soup.
Even though we are trying to do this show with a minimal budget, we still need your help! Your donations will help fund our designers, publicity, and the rights to the show.
The play goes up December 6, 7, 8 & 9th in the Wyatt Pavilion Theater on the UC Davis Campus. It is a free show with suggested donations accepted at the door. for more information please visit http://theatredance.ucdavis.edu/season/prod_details.aspx?p=58
Risks and challenges
Wyatt is an exciting, new space for me. It's larger than any space I've directed for. Bringing Dead Man's Cell Phone to life on the large stage is my biggest challenge.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
