Victoria, BC (June 10, 2019) – Pamela found cassettes from the answering machine she had as a teenager in the 1990s. Instead of a ritual burning, she’s sharing this archive of adolescence in After the Beep – her one-person cringe fest. Part confessional, part show-and-tell, it’s Watergate Tapes meets The Breakfast Club. It’s a show for anyone who was ever a teenager or had an answering machine.

Yes, she had to contact everybody whose voice is now in the show and yes, it was awkward.

Pamela Bethel is based in Victoria, BC where the show premiered at UNO Fest in 2017. It has since played at the Victoria Fringe (2017) Winnipeg Fringe, Nanaimo Fringe (2018). This year After the Beep plays the Toronto Fringe and Vancouver Fringe.
