The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts announces their final show of the 2012 season, the comedy, Dead Man’s Cell Phone, written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by Alicia Dempster.

While at a café, a man dies but his cell phone will not stop ringing. The woman at the next table answers his ringing phone and is soon playing comforter to the man’s grieving friends and family. In the course of meeting these people, she falls in love with the dead man’s brother and becomes ensnarled in the dead man’s bizarre life.

Dead Man’s Cell Phone is an imaginative comedy by award winning playwright and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. The play tells the tale of a woman forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption and the need to connect in a technologically-obsessed world. The Off-Broadway production was a starring vehicle for Mary Louise Parker and the play had an extended run at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre in 2008.
