Dead Man’s Cell Phone

Mainstage Theater

Written by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Anne Bogart

Gordon is dead, but his cell phone lives on.  When Jean, an empathetic museum worker, answers his ringing phone beside her in a café, she is soon playing unwitting comforter and confessor to the man’s grieving friends and family.  Before she knows it, Jean’s ensnarled in the underbelly of the dead man’s bizarre life.  A wildly imaginative new comedy, Dead Man’s Cell Phone is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically-obsessed world.
