Dead Man’s Cell Phone at UCLA

I’m very excited to be working on my first full-length project with my classmates at UCLA. If you live out here, I hope you will consider coming out to see some very talented actors. And also me.

by Sarah Ruhl

directed by Alex Levy

featuring Lauren Dunagan, Josephine Keefe, Nina Law, Catherine Leong, Colin Fairchild, and Matthew Wrather

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet caf. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man’s Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative new comedy by playwright Sarah Ruhl, recipient of a MacArthur ”Genius” Grant and Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play The Clean House. A work about how we memorialize the dead— and how that remembering changes us—it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
