SYNOPSIS: An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet cafe. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man – with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man’s Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative new comedy by MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl, author of Eurydice and In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play. A work about how we memorialize the dead – and how that remembering changes us – 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. The play was awarded the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play.
“… a beguiling comedy… in which the surface illogic of dreams is made meaningful – made truthful – by the deeper logic of human feeling.” – New York Times.
“Satire is her oxygen… In her new oddball comedy… Sarah Ruhl is forever vital in her lyrical and biting takes on how we behave.” – Washington Post.
