Dead Man's Cell Phone

Despite dying an ordinary death in an ordinary café, Gordon Gottlieb was no ordinary man. Of course, we might never have known if Jean had not answered (and kept) the dead man’s ringing phone.

Now, in a surreal journey through the absurd sides of grief and love, Jean is determined to make Gordon the man she believes he always should have been. She soon learns that righting Gordon’s wrongs, comforting his family, and answering his calls may turn out to be more soup than she can slurp. Jean has two things going for her – a good heart and a dead man’s cell phone - both are about to get her into a lot of trouble.

Playfully asking, “Where do we go when someone else dies,” the metaphysical pairing of Gordon and Jean leads to laughs and love, while questioning our ability to truly connect.

Help Make it Happen

Being scrappy and innovative only gets us so far. It costs money to rent performance space, build scenery, and purchase advertising. And we believe in fair compensation for our artists and partners, so we can’t pay for everything through ticket sales alone. Can you help us with one of these important items?

  • $3.50 buys one wooden 2x4
  • $30 covers printing programs for one night
  • $100 keeps our website online for a year
  • $250 buys costumes for one show
