The Department of Theatre and Dance at Texas State University-San Marcos will present Sarah Ruhl’s “Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” April 8-10 at 7:30 p.m. and April 11 at 2 p.m. at the PSH Foundation Studio Theatre, a venue housed in the Texas State University Theatre Center.

Tickets will be $8 for general admission and $5 for students.

The “wildly imaginative comedy” tells the story of a woman forced to confront her own morality and ideals after she answers an incessantly ringing cell phone that belongs to a dead man. Theatre graduate student Christine Tankersley will direct the play.
