Oberlin College Theater Presents Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl. Directed by Taylor Greenthal ’15.

An empty bowl of soup. A dead man in a cafe. A ringing cell phone. Step into the curious world of Jean, a lonely young woman in search of meaning amongst the seemingly mundane. After impulsively answering a dead man’s cell phone, Jean is whisked into the private life of a man she never knew, ultimately finding a new beginning for herself in his ended existence. Yet as she attempts to bring closure to his life, the surprising details of his character emerge, forcing Jean to question all that she values. Playful, poetic, and haunting, Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone is a relevant exploration of both the deep isolation and connection enabled by technology.
