Dead Man's Cellphone
The University of Maryland Baltimore County

Following an accidental meeting in a coffee shop, a woman, Jean, inherits (or rather, pockets) an incessantly ringing cell phone from underneath its recently deceased owner, Gordon.  Caught up in a series of strange encounters, Jean must confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect to another human being in a technologically obsessed world.  Wildly imaginative and at times funny, sad, and touchingly beautiful, the play muses on the absurdity of today's human interaction and the difficulty of finding and holding onto meaningful relationships.
