EmergenciPhone! won a sold-out award in the 2012 San Francisco Fringe Festival, and was a hit with the Fringe audiences. Now the production moves to Cañada College in Redwood City. It was written and directed by Anna Budd, professor of Theater Arts at Cañada College.


Emma has just been attacked on the street, so she does what people in the year 2030 do – she calls for help using the EmergenciPhone, run by AmeriSecuriCorp Incorporated, America’s “favorite” private, for-profit police company.
 
She is transferred, put on hold, forced to take surveys, cajoled into upgrading her contract, she explains and re-explains her situation to a ridiculous range of characters, all while being stalked by her mysterious attacker.


 George Orwell meets Comcast’s Customer Service meets Samuel Beckett in this hilarious and disturbing exploration of law enforcement in this futuristic “free” market!
