An 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 “Genius” Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House). An off-the-wall play about the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
What the critics are saying:
"Satire is her oxygen… In her new oddball comedy, Sarah Ruhl is forever vital in her lyrical and biting takes on how we behave." – The Washington Post
"Ruhl's zany probe of the razor-thin line between life and death delivers a fresh and humorous look at the times we live in." – Variety
"…beguiling new comedy blends " – The New York Times
