Dead Man’s Cell Phone

By Sarah Ruhl.
Co-produced with the Actors Comedy Lab.

Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre
January 20 – February 5, 2012

In a quiet cafe a cell phone rings. And rings. And rings, until the stranger at the next table has had enough. She confronts the owner of the cell phone, only to discover that he’s, well…he’s dead. She begins to answer his calls and suddenly finds herself enmeshed in his life and family. Unfortunately, the dead guy has quite a number of shady loose ends. This surreal comic fantasy traces one woman’s accidental journey from the quiet cafe to the afterlife and back.
