Can I bring my fig tree back to life?

I went away for two weeks and my well-meaning but plant adverse roomate "watered" my fig bonsai... By which I mean she dumped water on the leaves and the trunk, but not the soil. Yup. When I came back the soil was bone dry and the leaves were shriveled up. It was still drinking water when I watered it, which gives me a little hope. Is there anything I can do to save it?

You can only hope... wait... and prepare a fitting memorial. Not likely to return, but depending on how long things were neglected, or whether you've seen any sign of new growth, you never know. Not likely though.
