Dead Man’s Cell Phone

Sarah Ruhl’s off-kilter comedy satirizes modern society’s love affair with the cell phone while exploring the bond between identity and technology. Irritated by the incessant ringing from the table behind her, 30-something technophobe Jean brings herself to confront the phone’s owner—only to discover him lying face down in a bowl of lobster bisque. So she does the only natural thing: she answers the call. She soon finds herself delivering messages to the late Gordon’s loved ones, and if she has to make a few exaggerations about their relationship, it’s a small price to pay for the sense of closure she provides. But as fact blurs with fiction, Jean might be getting in way over her head.
