About the Show:
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. So begins this fascinating new work about how we memorialize the dead—and how that remembering changes us. It is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

  • Jean female age 39
  • Gordon male late 30’s to late 40’s
