Dead Man's Cell Phone
by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Rachel Jones

In a quiet café, a woman answers a ringing cell phone, not knowing that its owner is dead. She soon finds herself wrapped up in his bizarre past as she plays comforter to his grieving family and keeper of his illicit affairs, both business and personal. This comedy [by Pulitzer prize finalist and MacArthur “Genius” grant recipient Sarah Ruhl] forces us to realize that we need to rely on one another a little more and our gadgets a little less.

Opens May 2nd, 8pm, previews May 1 at 8pm, May 2nd at 2pm
