Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl, Director: Pat Kight.  The play was awarded a Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play in 2008. It’s a quirky, surrealistic, hallucinatory and bizarre fantasy.   A woman answers the cell phone of a stranger who dies in a café.  Instead of turning the phone over to authorities she keeps it and takes messages from the dead man’s business associates, friends, family members, even his mistress. The more we learn about the man the more we realize he was a terrible person who loved himself far more than anyone else in his life. However, the woman’s imaginative reinvention of his character brings peace to his family.
