“Riotously Funny” – The Miami Herald
A long distance journey into the mysteries of life.
Jean is sleepwalking through her life until she answers a dead man’s cell phone. It turns out to be a wake-up call that sends her on a date with the dead man’s brother, a drinking binge with his wife, and a mysterious rendez-vous with his mistress. Not to mention trips to the afterlife and the black market. In this quirky modern adventure, Jean re-connects to her own spirit and learns that life is for the living.
A captivating new comedy from the award-winning Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House), Dead Man’s Cellphone traces one woman’s accidental quest to make a few people feel just a little bit better about themselves.
Running time: 1 hour and 50 minutes (+ 15 minute interval)
