Organic Theater Pittsburgh presents Sarah Ruhl's DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE


ORGANIC THEATER PITTSBURGH presents Sarah Ruhl's award-winning, dark comedy, Dead Man's Cell Phone, which has been described as, "fearless, surreal, edgy, playful, lovely, quirky, delightful, and hilarious."

How much could someone learn about you if they found your cell phone--and started answering your calls? In this mythic love story, a lonely woman answers a stranger's cell phone and finds herself the guardian of his memory. Traveling literally to hell and back, this quirky comedy is set in a world where technology is swallowing our souls and everyone is desperate to make connections.

Dead Man's Cell Phone premiered at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, DC in 2007 followed by successful runs at the acclaimed Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago and Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2008.

Sarah Ruhl is the recipient of a MacArthur "Genius" Grant and a Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play, The Clean House. She has been awarded the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, the Helen Merrill Emerging Playwrights Award, and the Whiting Writers' Award.

The cast includes: Jaime Slavinsky as Jean, Adam Kukic as Dwight, Ja'Sonta Roberts-Deen as The Other Woman/Stranger, Jennifer Chervenick as Hermia, Deb Wein as Mrs. Gottlieb & Michael E. Moats as The Dead Man.
