DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE Returns to Chicago, 7/10-27

The Enthusiasts Theatre Company presents Dead Man's Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Toma Tavares Langston.

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man-with a lot of loose ends. The show is about the struggle to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

Dead Man's Cell Phone is a wildly imaginative comedy by MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl, author of the The Clean House and Eurydice. The last local production was done by Steppenwolf Theatre Company in March 2008.


Performances are July 10 through July 27, 2014


Athenaeum Theatre, Studio One, 2936 North Southport Avenue, Chicago IL


Tickets are $20

Student and Senior Citizen discount tickets are available. To purchase tickets, visit or call Box Office 773-935-6875
