UIW Department of Theatre Arts presents Dead Man’s Cell Phone

Dead Man’s Cell Phone, by award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl, is a darkly comic fable for our post-modern world.

Technology has made our lives easier by connecting us, but is easier always better when it comes to human relationships?  The cell phone allows us to always “be there” for each other – even when we really aren’t.

What if you were sitting in a quite café and some guy at the table next to you refused to answer his incessantly ringing cell phone?  Would you answer it for him?  A quiet woman does and it sends her on a strange but exciting journey of self-discovery in our technologically obsessed world.

UIW’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone features lighting by Melissa Gaspar, costumes by Margaret Mitchell and direction by Robert Ball.
