Life around Jean is stark and paper-thin but, when she answers the incessantly ringing phone of the not-so-obviously-dead Gordon, her world fills to vivid and colorful three dimensions. Lobster bisque, paper houses, red meat… A ballet of the mundane, the morbid, and the metaphysical, Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man Cell Phone is a swirling blizzard of ideas about love, legacy and the afterlife. Fibs become lies become deception as she meets Gordon’s family and is confronted with love, intrigue, spirituality, and the occasional black market organ trafficking. Despite all this, Jean insists on carrying Gordon’s legacy, but what legacy is she helping to carry on?
