Dead Man's Cell Phone / Sarah Ruhl

A beguiling comedy ... a hallucinatory poetic fantasy that blends the mundane and the metaphysical, the blunt and the obscure, the patently bizarre and the bizarrely moving. As Dead Alan’s Cell Phone takes surprising twists and leaps, the lament for the supposed coziness of pre-digital culture takes on layers of nuance and contradiction. Characters in Ruhl’splays negotiate the no man’s land between the everyday and the mystical, talking like goofs one minute and philosophers the next. And her characters’ quirkiness is in keeping too, with the play’s doleful central theme, that each human being is a book full of surprises even to intimates, and that one is destined to be left unfinished. Ruhl’s affection for the unexpected phrase, the kooky observation, the unlikely juxtaposition, is essential to her central belief that the smallest and most trivial things in life can be charged with meaning. She writes surrealist fantasies that happen to be populated by eccentrically real people, comedies in which the surface illogic of dreams is made meaningful— made truthful—by the deeper logic of human feeling.
