Parts other:





Telephone is a meditation on the nature of invention, love, and the disembodied voice. The following description is from the press release: "Like Avital Ronell's The Telephone Book (which inspired it), Reines's play operates like a switchboard connecting people and places across time and space. In Part I, Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas A. Watson return to the stage, having first presented their history-changing invention to the public in theaters, vaudeville-style. In Part II, Miss St. (Jung's notorious schizophrenic madwoman) takes over, suffering the slander of invisible telephones and telling the audience all about it. Part III is a succession of cell phone conversations between people who love each other. Together, the three parts add up to a tender and ferociously poetic work that asks what it means to 'take the call' not knowing who or what will be on the other end."
