DEAD MANâ€™S CELL PHONE
By Sarah Ruhl Directed by Bruce Lanning
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet cafÃ©. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead manâ€”with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Manâ€™s Cell Phone, a 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 work about how we memorialize the deadâ€”and how that remembering changes usâ€”it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
