Mark your calendars!
Dead Man's Cell Phone
opens Friday, May 3rd, and runs on Thursday - Sunday thru May 19th 2013
darkly romantic comedy by award winning playwright Sarah Ruhl
and directed by
This play begins in a restaurant when a woman picks up a dead
and answers it. So begins the woman’s journey into the man’s
bizarre world. She keeps the phone,
fields his calls, and becomes his social
secretary, inadvertently involved in redirecting
and rewriting his life. As she
tries her loopy best to bring joy to his survivors, she delivers made-up messages
from him and makes of him the man he never was.
Why? Because, as she says to his survivors, “When Gordon’s phone
rang and rang after he died,
I thought his phone was beautiful, like it was the
only thing keeping him alive, like as long
as people called him he would be alive.”
All of us know with our fixation for anything wireless, phones connect and phones
In this play the ringing phone becomes a powerful totem, showing us
the irony of how we live
and how we love in this digital age.
