Dead Man's Cell Phone 

When: Jan. 20-Feb. 5 2012
Price: $12-$15

If Jean's not terribly flamboyant, she's certainly an obliging soul. So when the cell phone of the man seated at the cafe table next to her keeps ringing—and she discovers the man is dead—she answers it. Then she takes the phone with her. And keeps on answering it.

Dead Man's Cell Phone may surprise even those familiar with playwright Sarah Ruhl's quirky works (including In the Next Room, Antigone and The Clean House). In this elliptical 2007 comedy of contretemps, more than one character is ultimately devoted to compassionate obfuscation—the proposition that sometimes, the very best thing you can give the next of kin is ... a lie. In this Raleigh Little Theatre co-production with Actors Comedy Lab, Rod Rich directs a cast including Stanley Amditis, Kate Tonner and Morrisa Nagel. The show runs Thursdays–Saturdays at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 3 p.m., through Feb. 5. —Byron Woods
