Dead Man’s Cell Phone By Sarah Ruhl

Sept 24 – Oct 12

Sarah Ruhl (In the Next Room, The Clean House) has made a name for herself as one of America’s most exciting young playwrights. Her work is always laced with surprise and humour as she tackles contemporary themes, which under a lesser writer’s pen, might come across as didactic. Dead Man’s Cell Phone is every bit as intriguing as the title suggests. Jean, the main character, impulsively answers a dead man’s cellphone, and from then on, the play unfolds in a perfect blend of suspense and farce. On the surface, the story explores the paradox of modern technology’s ability to both unite and isolate people in the digital age, but on a deeper level it confronts the question of how identity itself is formed. Are we who we think we are? Or are we who others think we are? Both hilarious and nail-biting, Dead Man’s Cell Phone is a great pre-Halloween offering.

“delivers a fresh and humorous look at the times we live in.” Variety

Directed by Morgan Gadd Starring Melissa Blank, Perry Burton, Cam Culham, Sarah Heyman, Wendy Magahay, Carilynn Nicholson
