Dead Man’s Cell Phone


Directed by Jill Harrison


“The consequences of our techno-obsessed culture…make fine fodder for Simpatico Theatre Project’s wildly entertaining production of Ruhl’s quirky comedy.” -Debra Miller, Stage Magazine

“You can’t help but leave Simpatico’s sincerely and well made Dead Man’s Cell Phone without feeling like you’ve taken a trip and ended up somewhere better than you started.”
-Leah Franqui, Staged


DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE is a deliciously provocative and deeply moving expose on our society’s tech obsession. Follow Jean as she embarks on an extraordinary odyssey for purpose and companionship, among a myriad of mysterious phone calls and tantalizing rendezvous. Will she have the courage to truly connect? Or will her journey yield further isolation?
