Concordia College Presents Dead Man’s Cell Phone. The show follows Jean, an eager to please woman, who comes into ownership of a cell phone previously belonging to Gordon, a dead man. Becoming inexorably entangled with the remnants of his life and family, Jean discovers the consequences of technology- how it both connects and isolates us- and how remembering the dead can change a person. This show is a poignant reminder of the power we hold literally in our hands.
After stumbling upon Gordon’s body and still-active cell phone, Jean becomes more and more involved with the grieving people around her. Keeping the titular cell phone for herself, she stumbles through a cast of absurd characters (those who knew Gordon while he was alive) and forms her own relationship with each. Separate yet involved, she comes dangerously close to losing herself to the ghost of Gordon’s past. Will Jean find a way back to her own life?
