Friday, May 18, 2007. 7:00 PM. Location: Fools Foundation – 1025 19th St, Sacramento. Off of K St between 19th & 20th next to the back end of Old Spaghetti Factory. Admission: $5.00.

With 42 official selections and 9 awards to-date, this fascinating and well crafted dramatic narrative finally makes its way to Sacramento! Starring Steve Guttenberg (in a decidedly different performance from his role in the Police Academy series), Annabeth Gish (Mystic Pizza, The X-Files, The West Wing), and Christine Elise McCarthy (ER, American Hardcore). In the middle of the Mojave desert, just outside Las Vegas, rests an abandoned phone booth, riddled with bullet holes, graffiti, its windows broken, but otherwise functioning. Word of the phone booth initially spread via the Internet in the mid 1990’s, and for years, travelers would make the trek down a lonely dirt road and camp next to the booth in the hopes that it might suddenly ring, and they could connect with a stranger - often from another country. This is the story of four disparate characters whose lives intersect with this mystical outpost, and the common voice they seek on the other end of the line. Exploring themes of love, death, the mystery of the universe, and the phenomenon of inter-connectivity, Mojave Phone Booth pitches us into the psyches of these characters, examines the double-lives we lead, and the sacrifices we must make to survive in these challenging times.
