The Virgin Valley Theatre Group will hold auditions for ‘Dead Man’s Cell Phone’ on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 3-5 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 19 from 3-5 p.m. at the offices of the Mesquite Local News, 12 W. Mesquite Blvd. Unit #109 by Bowler Realty. Dead Man’s Cell Phone will be directed by Teri Nehrenz.
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 MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl, author of The Clean House and Eurydice.
This is a work about how we memorialize the dead and how those memories change us. It’s the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.—Samuel French
