DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE Comes to Tempest Theatre Stage At Elizabethtown College

A continually 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.

So begins "Dead Man's Cell Phone," a comic odyssey by Sarah Ruhl, in which a woman is forced to confront her assumptions about morality, redemption and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

"Characters in Ruhl's plays negotiate the no man's land between the everyday and the mystical, talking like goofs one minute and philosophers the next." -- Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"Dead Man's Cell Phone" is on the Tempest Stage at Elizabethtown College at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15; Friday, Feb. 16; Saturday, Feb. 17; and the next weekend at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22 and Friday, Feb. 23, as well as 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25.
