Bellevue College's six night run of 'Dead Man's Cell Phone' kicks off Nov.13 - 15

An incessantly ringing cellphone in a quiet cafe has annoyed the stranger at the nearby table long enough, but when they don’t realize is, a dead man has a lot of loose ends.

Bellevue College students are set to open “Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl for a six night run opening Nov. 13 through 15, and Nov. 20 through 22, at the Stop Gap Studio Theatre.

The play, which analyzes how people memorialize the dead, follows the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about mortality, redemption and the need to connect in a technologically-obsessed world.

The show’s produced by Bellevue Colleges’s Department of Theatre Arts, and directed by Tammis Doyle.Tickets range from $12 for general admission to $10 for students.

For more information contact Tammi Doyle at (425) 564-2319 or tammi.doyle@bellevuecollege.edu.
