Carlson Theatre – Bellevue College

In 1927 on a farm in Indiana teenage Ruby struggles to turn her dream of the first all-electrical television system into a reality. The play then jumps forward to 1952 and a McCarthy-era New York TV studio where Ruby’s heirs fight over how her story should be told, The Ruby Sunrise charts the course of the phenomenon of television: from early idealism and sparks of genius, to promises fulfilled and compromises brokered. Groff’s play examines the mechanics of storytelling, of the ways in which truth can be compromised and histories revised. 

AUDITIONS FOR THE RUBY SUNRISE: September 28 and 29 on campus.  Please email Tammi Doyle at for information.  Scripts will be available to read in the theatre lobby beginning September 27.  Please prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary comic or dramatic monologue.
