Homespun Theatre arrives on the Berkshire theater scene with a staged reading of Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl. It will take place on Saturday (December 6) at 7pm and Sunday (December 7) at 3:00pm at Lauren Clark Fine Art on 25 Railroad Street in Great Barrington, MA.

The play tells the story of Jean, a woman who finds a dead man sitting in a café and decides to answer his ringing cell phone. She becomes swept up in his life, finding herself connected to the people who loved him most, determined to finish his unfinished business. As Jean’s imagination takes over, heaven and earth become intertwined, the lines between truth and fable blur. She’s forced to confront her own assumptions of morality, redemption, and connection in a technologically obsessed world. Does technology hide us from true human connection?
