About Dead Man's Cell Phone

Dead Man’s Cell Phone

By Sarah Ruhl 
Directed by Carmel O’Reilley     


When a man at a café table suddenly dies and his cell phone rings, the woman at the next table answers it, dropping her into the labyrinth of his life in this new comedy. As she forges new relationships on his behalf with his bereft family members, she discovers his  life was a mystery even to those closest to him. 

The New York Times said, “Ms. Ruhl is the rare young writer with a truly  theatrical imagination. She goes her own way, discovering surprising beauty and offbeat humor in  unlikely places.”
