Answer that dead guy's cellphone at Centerstage

By Winter Dorval- Staff Reporter



Get swept away in murder, mystery, and romance this weekend in Federal Way.

Centerstage will be performing Dead Man's Cell Phone.

This will be it's first showing at Centerstage.

"We probably won't do this one again for a couple years at least. We try to shake it up, and give the audiences something new," said Trista Duval, Artistic director at Centerstage.

The play was written by Sarah Ruhl in 2008.

"The director, John Vreeke, worked at the  Woody Mammoth theater where Dead Man's Cell Phone had its world premiere. Now he gets to direct it himself," said Duval.

The acting is complicated so it doesn't get performed very often, said Duval.

"This play is a study of how we deal with loss, and how different people respond to it," said Duval.

The play shows who the main character is through the people in his life, Duval said.

"The woman sitting next to him picks up his phone, and adopts his life," Duval said.

"It's a dark comedy, with some intrigue, mystery and a kind of Noir twist," Duval said.

The play will run from Jan. 26 to Feb. 11.

The address is 3200 S.W. Dash Point Road,Federal Way, WA.

Tickets will be $29 for adults, $25 for military and seniors (65 and older), $15 for youth (ages 18-25), and $12 for kids (17 and younger).
