THE STORY: A turbulent affair between a teenage boy and his math teacher is brought to life from the surprising perspective of the boy’s best friend: his cell phone. Red McCray is a troubled fifteen-year-old, furious that his parents’ split has forced him to transfer schools. His new algebra teacher has just moved in with her boyfriend, a wannabe tech entrepreneur happily living off her steady paychecks. As Red’s phone gets sucked into a breakneck journey from pockets to purses, and through text messages and photo galleries, it takes us inside an utterly unique view on human interaction, struggling to unpack some of life’s most complex equations.
“[A] clever, funny-sad play…An elegantly constructed examination of contemporary isolation and the illusory nature of electronic connection…” —The New York Times. “Screams of novelty. Armento pushes boundaries, challenging his spectator to engage with the modern environment instead of ignorantly accepting it.” —The Huffington Post. “…exhilarating…[The play] brims with linguistic spirals…Armento’s language has a kind of poetry to it. In fact, the script reads like a lyric epic, filled with short stanzas that propel the story to exquisite effect…a gleaming portrait of our collective contemporary existence.” —AmericanTheaterWeb.com.
