About This Show

How much could someone learn about you if they found your cell phone — and you weren’t there to stop them? From the lyrical author of The Clean House comes an oddly mythic love story in which a lonely woman finds herself the unwitting guardian of a stranger’s memory. Traveling literally to hell and back, Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone 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. Rebecca Bayla Taichman directs.

“[Ruhl] tackles big ideas with a voice that entertains” – NPR
