Bradley Theatre Production Puts Phones Center Stage

Feb 23, 2018

This week, our guests are Sarah Salazar-Martin and Trevor Bety. They're the director and assistant director, respectively, of "Dead Man's Cell Phone" at Bradley University Theatre. The play tells the story of a woman who answers a stranger's phone, and finds herself drawn deeper and deeper into that man's life. Along the way, it explores issues of connection, isolation and intimacy. Salazar-Martin and Bety say that those themes have particular resonance for a generation that has grown up with smart phones and their promise of instant, ubiquitous communication.

"Dead Man's Cell Phone" continues through Sunday, March 4th at the Hartmann Center Theatre at Bradley University.
