Dead Man’s Cell Phone – September 2010

Dead Man’s Cell Phone  – September 2010

Written by Sarah Ruhl • Directed by Barry Bell

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café… a dead man… and a lot of loose ends. So begins this wildly imaginative new comedy by playwright Sarah Ruhl, recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Grant and Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play The Clean House. A quirky and ethereal odyssey of a woman who is forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
