The Dorset Players and Charlie’s Coffee Shop proudly present “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” by Sarah Ruhl. Directed by Marisa Valent, “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” plays February 17th and 18th at 7:30pm and February 19th at 2pm.
An incessantly ringing cell phone at a quiet cafe. Jean (Debbie Warnock) at the next table has had enough. And Gordon (Jeff Cox), a dead man – with a lot of loose ends. So begins “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” a wildly imaginative comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. A work about how we memorialize the dead – and how that remembering changes us – it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world. Along the way Jean has to deal with Gordon’s Mother, Mrs. Gottlieb (Susan Fingerhut), his wife Hermia (Julie Redington), his brother Dwight (Colin Hill), and his mistress and business companion The Other Woman/The Stranger (Michelle Cox). The ensemble is rounded out by Mary Jo Greco, Susan Altoft and Janet Groom.
