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
