Dead Man's Cell Phone

By Sarah Ruhl 
Directed by Kari Hatfield

When Jean answers the cell phone of a recently deceased café patron, she holds on to the device to keep the man alive in a strange yet significant way. Jean’s quiet life is turned upside-down as she’s thrust into a world of mysterious strangers, shady business deals, and the potential for true love. A story about memory, redemption, and connection – and disconnection – in a technology-obsessed world, Ruhl’s comedy is a mesmerizing reflection of today.

“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
