Dead Man's Cell Phone
Jan 11–27, 2019
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Scott Ford
In this oddball comedy, a man dies in a small café, but his cell phone will not stop ringing. Jean, the woman at the next table, answers the phone and quickly ends up stuck in the middle of all his troubles, including becoming connected to his family, and unexpectedly falling in love with his brother, all while confronting her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and how we memorialize the dead.
Winner of the 2006 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play and marked by Sarah Ruhl’s distinctive theatricality, this loopy and highly imaginative fantasy is rooted in the universal themes of love, death, grief, sibling rivalry, and a longing for connectedness.
