Play: Dead Man's Cell Phone'

'Dead Man's Cell Phone'

"How much could someone learn about you if they found your cell phone - and started answering your calls?

"From the lyrical author of The Clean House comes this oddly mythic love story in which a lonely woman, Jean, answers the cell phone of a stranger, Gordon, and finds herself the unwitting guardian of his memory.

Traveling literally to hell and back, Ruhl's quirky comedy is set amidst a world where technology is swallowing our souls, grieving is more complicated than we think, and everyone is desperate to make connections."
