THE STORY: An incredible coming of age story of an affair between a student and his math teacher, told through interactions with the student’s cell phone. A breakneck journey from pockets to purses, through text messages and photo galleries, PLEASE EXCUSE MY DEAR AUNT SALLY takes us inside a unique perspective on human interaction and unlocks life’s most complex equations.
“[A] clever, funny-sad play…An elegantly constructed examination of contemporary isolation and the illusory nature of electronic connection…” —NY Times. “…a remarkable and intriguing play…” — “…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.” —
