Dead Man's Cell Phone

Fine Arts Center | The Rand Theater
7:30pm

A ringing cell phone, an empty bowl of lobster bisque, and a dead man one table over—so begins Sarah Ruhl’s wildly imaginative Dead Man’s Cell Phone. When Jean answers the phone of a recently deceased stranger, she unwittingly embarks on a transformational journey of family deception, international intrigue, and romantic discovery. By turns touching and harrowing, Ruhl’s play is a whimsical and whip-smart meditation on the pleasures and pains of love in an increasingly digitized world.
