Dead Man’s Cell Phone opens on May 30 at the Masquers Playhouse. A wildly imaginative comedy from the brilliant playwright Sarah Ruhl. Dead Man’s Cell Phone is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a world obsessed with technology. Sarah Ruhl was the recipient of a prestigious “genius grant” from the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation, and Dead Man’s Cell Phone was awarded the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play.

The cast includes Mariah Castle, Lynne Hollander, Charles Isenn, Shannon Kase, Katina Letheule, Dominick Palamenti and Judy Zimola. Directed by James Nelson.
