“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."

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.
