Dead Man's Cell Phone

Nov. 25-27 and Dec. 2-4, 2021
  • Sarah Ruhl
  • Directed by Catriona Leger

Alone in a cafe, Jean impulsively answers a stranger's ringing cellphone only to discover the owner beside her is dead. This sets into motion a series of events that result in the perfect blend of suspense and farce as Jean gets caught up in the dead man's family affairs and underhanded business dealings. Both hilarious and nail-biting, this is a story of ordinary people living extraordinary lives, where small coincidences turn into quirky metaphysical conundrums.
