Dead Man’s Cell Phone

January 28, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$15

by Sarah Ruhl
Nic Few, DirectorAn incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man. So begins Dead Man’s Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative comedy by MacArthur fellow Sarah Ruhl.
When Jean finally picks up the dead man’s phone, her days become intertwined with his past  and the life that goes on without him. As an employee at the Holocaust museum, Jean is well acquainted with the idea of morality and redemption—but the dead man’s funeral forces her to confront her long-standing assumptions.
With twists and turns and a bit of whimsy, this off-the-wall play explores our need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
This production contains profanity.
