A new play by Kevin Armento
commissioned and developed by OYL Theater Company
“a clever, funny-sad new play”
“a supple fast-paced highly physical production”
“the sleek seductiveness of good tech design … and the pulsing warmth of passion.”
“It’s a gleaming portrait of our collective contemporary existence.”
“high-adrenaline and sleek production”
“the script reads like a lyric epic, filled with short stanzas that propel the story to exquisite effect”
“for the inquisitive millennial who’s grown up in a technologically obsessed culture, it screams of novelty”
“a new kind of Greek chorus”
"This is theater at it's very best."
– Dr. Joy Browne Radio Show, Joy Browne
An illicit affair between a high school math teacher and her fifteen year-old student is told
through the eyes of 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 tries to unpack some of life's most complex equations.
In Kevin Armento's please excuse my dear aunt sally, our narrator tries to break down
complicated human experiences through an order of operations you may remember from middle school.
