“Lookinglass Playhouse presents Dead Man’s Cell Phone”

November 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

November will have a Bag Lunch EXTRA program featuring actors from
Lookinglass Playhouse. They will perform Dead Man’s Cell Phone on WEDNESAY,
November 13th beginning at 12 noon. The performance will last approximately 75
minutes and is made possible by the Friends of the Library.
The play, Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl, explores the paradox of
modern technology’s ability to both unite and isolate people in the digital age. The New
York Times describes this as “a beguiling comedy…a poetic fantasy that blends the
mundane and the metaphysical…the patently bizarre and the bizarrely moving.”
Lookinglass Playhouse is an acting company based in Brevard dedicated to performing
interesting works both new and old. The members include Andy, Sandi and Mark
Thompson, Amy Shute, Nita Porter, Sally Burnett and founding member Claudia Carter
The Bag Lunch Arts Series is sponsored by the Friends of the Transylvania
County Library. Proceeds from Friends’ memberships and from Second Story Book
Store sales help pay for all of the programming at the Library. There is never a charge
to attend programs and the public is invited to bring along a bag lunch to enjoy during
this presentation. Refreshments for Bag Lunch are provided by the Friends and include
cookies and coffee from Blue Ridge Bakery. For more information, call the Transylvania
County Library at 884-3151.
