Dead Man's Cell Phone

Dead Mans Cell Phone

By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Adrianne Krstansky
October 9-12
Laurie Theater, Spingold Theater Center

Jean, unmarried and approaching 40, sits in a cafe as a man's cell phone rings. And rings. And continues to ring. Irritated, Jean approaches the owner of the phone and discovers he has quietly died in the cafe. She decides to keep his phone and begins answering his calls, keeping him alive in a strange yet significant way. As she takes messages from the dead man's colleagues, friends, family members and even his mistress, she finds herself involved in his life and afterlife in hilarious and shocking ways. This play, which had its New York City premiere at Playwrights Horizons, is a moving and funny exploration of how, in the midst of our fragile lives, technology can both unite and isolate us, especially in our quest for true love.
