Dead Man’s Cell Phone
Sarah Ruhl’s whimsical dark comedy, Dead Man’s Cell Phone, looks at personal responsibility, integrity and human connection, June 5 through 30, at the International City Theatre in Long Beach.
A lonely woman is forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world as she steps into the life of a dead man by taking his cell phone calls. What starts as a moment of frustration quickly turns into a bond of curious loyalty when Jean finds herself caught in the middle of another man’s tangled web of relationships and family. Acting as his mouthpiece, Jean soon discovers different types of connections that go beyond the physical, tapping into the psychological, the emotional and even…the afterlife.
Tickets range from $29 to $50.
