Lake Superior State University presents: "Dead Man's Cell Phone""

Arts &Theater
Location: LSSU Arts Center, Sault Ste Marie
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet cafe. 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 Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl. A work about how we memorialize the dead--and how that remembering changes us--it is the odyssey of a woman and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world. Film Noir, meets graphic novel, meets, the bizarre.
