Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding New Play, 2007.
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet cafe. A stranger at the next table who has had enough of it. And a dead man – with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man’s Cell Phone. Dead Man’s Cell Phone is a work about how we remember the dead – and how that memorialization changes us. It is the journey of a woman forced to confront her presumptions about morality, redemption, and isolation in a technologically obsessed society.
