SCHS to Present DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE, 2/14-15

Celebrate Valentine's Day with theatre! Join South County High School senior thespians February 14 and 15 as they present Dead Man's Cell Phone, an imaginative new comedy by MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl.

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. Ruhl, author of The Clean House and Eurydice, creates a work about how we memorialize the dead - and how remembering changes us. The play is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

Directed by SCHS English teacher Dan Deiter, the play features an all-senior thespian cast: Emmy Brien as Jean, Jeremy Thomas as Gordon (the dead man), Kelsey Davis as Gordon's mother, Kathy Oh as Gordon's widow, Sam Weggeman as Gordon's brother, and Jackie Parman as the stranger.

The play runs Friday, February 14 and Saturday, February 15 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5.00. The Dale S. Rumberger Auditorium at South County High School is located at 8501 Silverbrook Road, Lorton, Virginia 22079. This play contains adult language and is intended for mature audiences.
