Share Your Thoughts: Dead Man's Cell Phone

The staged reading of Dead Man's Cell Phone took place tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette with more than 60 people in attendance. As with other staged readings in the series, it was followed by a question-and-answer session between the audience, the cast and the director, Tracie Ewing.

Did you attend the staged reading? What did you think about the characters, the plot and other elements of the script? What were some of the high points? What will you remember most about this staged reading?

I love the tone of the script. It moves from mundane everyday situations (the incessant ringing of a cell phone and the annoyance it creates) to the sweet and lyrical (feeling the different stock of paper in a store, discussing what the afterlife holds for everyone).

Tracie, Melanie, Dustin, Jane, Heather and Tim should be congratulated for their work, but Sarah Ruhl also deserves a healthy nod for the script.
