The Dead Guy by Eric Coble at the Hollywood Fringe Festival presented by the MFA in Television, Film and Theatre at Cal State LA.

A multimedia satirical comedy about Reality TV where the audience determines the outcome of Eldon, a down-and-out guy offered a million dollars to spend for one week in exchange for a live broadcast of his demise chosen by the online voters: How will he go? Only YOU know….

Bob Bows of Variety stated, “Coble delivers his coup de grace, leaving no doubt about the price we pay for serving the wrong master.” The Houston Press called the play a “must-see”, stating, “Amoral, mercenary and totally devoid of good taste, it’s not such a far-fetched idea.”

Playwright: Eric Coble
Original Production Director: Leslie Ishii
