Read full description of the books:
Humor is uniquely idiosyncratic. What I find funny, you might find moronic. What makes you laugh may leave me simply nonplussed.
Dead Man's Cell Phone is by no means a great play. It reads like a ginned up first draft. The lead character's motivation is undeveloped and suspect. The second act starts with a monologue which is little more than a gassy information dump. Had the writer had pushed harder, this slapstick effort could have provided some profound insights into the fetishization of electronic devices and connection. It didn't get there.
I give the play four stars, though.
It made me laugh.

Read information about the authorSarah Ruhl (born 1974) is an American playwright. She is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater Award for a distinguished American playwright in mid-career.
Originally, she intended to be a poet. However, after she studied under Paula Vogel at Brown University (A.B., 1997; M.F.A., 2001), she was persuaded to switch to playwriting. Her first play was The Dog Play, written in 1995 for one of Vogel's classes. Her roots in poetry can be seen in the way she uses language in her plays. She also did graduate work at Pembroke College, Oxford.
In September 2006, she received a MacArthur Fellowship. The announcement of that award stated: "Sarah Ruhl, 32, playwright, New York City. Playwright creating vivid and adventurous theatrical works that poignantly juxtapose the mundane aspects of daily life with mythic themes of love and war."
