Theatre department presents “Dead Man’s Cell Phone”
Thursday, February 10, 2011
CANTON, Mo. -- 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. So begins “Dead Man's Cell Phone,” a wildly imaginative new comedy by playwright Sarah Ruhl, recipient of a MacArthur ''Genius'' Grant and Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play “The Clean House.” The play, about how we memorialize the dead, will be the third production for the Culver-Stockton College Theatre Department.
