 The University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance presents Sarah Ruhl’s thoughtful and intriguing playDead Man’s Cell Phone, February 14-23 at the Oscar G. Brockett Theatre.

When Jean answers the cell phone of a recently deceased café patron, she holds on to the device to keep the man alive in a strange yet significant way. Jean’s quiet life is turned upside-down as she’s thrust into a world of mysterious strangers, shady business deals, and the potential for true love.
