An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet cafe.  A stranger at the next table who has had enough.  And a dead man - with a lot of loose ends.  So begins DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE, a wildly imaginative comedy by MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl.  A work about how we memorialize the dead - and how that remembering changes us - it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

"Satire is her oxygen [...] In her oddball comedy, DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE, Sarah Ruhl is forever vital in her lyrical and biting takes on how we behave." - The Washington Post

"The beguiling comedy [...] blends the mundane and the metaphysical, the blunt and the obscure, the patently bizarre and the bizarrely moving [...] [Ruhl] writes surrealist fantasies that happen to be populated by eccentrically real people, comedies in which the surface illogic of dreams is made meaningful - made truthful - by the deeper logic of human feeling." - The New York Times

"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
