About the play: Susan, fifty-two years old, is leaving work late on a Friday afternoon. She almost misses the elevator and calls to the unseen person inside before she reaches it just in time. As she walks in, she turns to look at the other corner of the elevator and says, “Didn’t you hear me calling?” What follows is a surprising conversation. The unexpected ending is sure to astonish your audience. Easy to perform with virtually no props.
