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.
Dead Man's Cell Phone is our latest must-see show at the Salem Theatre Company. Written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by John Fogle, the play has been called, “a fresh and humorous look at the times we live in” by Variety and “vital” in its “lyrical and biting takes on how we behave” by the Washington Post.
Ruhl’s play is satirical look at how we “connect” in today's wired world. It is the comic odyssey of a lonely woman who, looking for love in all the wrong places, embarks on an adventure involving smuggling, international intrigue and time-travel… and triumphs!
The production will feature an original score by Salem-based Richard Lewis (Machine 475).
The show runs March 10 - April 2 at the STC Theater at 90 Lafayette Street in Salem, MA
Thursday - Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday at 3:00 p.m.
