After the Beep
Playwright: Pamela Bethel
Despite risking death by embarrassment, Pamela presses play on recordings from the answering machine she had as a 1990s teen. Part confessional, part show-and-tell, the voices —from BFFs to wrong numbers —tell the story of an under-supervised over-achiever. A timeless time capsule for anyone who was ever a teenager or answering machine owner.
**** “Funny and sharply observed, it’s an intelligent and honest look at adolescence.” — Times Colonist
“There’s much more going on behind the pop and bubble of youthful exuberance in After the Beep (though there’s plenty of that too).” —CFUV
