“Elevator” Stage Play Debuts in Tucson at the Proscenium – A 9/11 Event


Based on the film script, “Elevator” is a harrowing fact-based play concerning six people trapped inside an elevator within the World Trade Center on 9/11



“Elevator” is a character study of six lives trapped in a World Trade Center elevator, driven by the astonishing facts of the elevator system in the twin towers and seen through an amalgam of what happened to the passenger elevators on the day of 9/11.  The play begins a few minutes before the first plane hits the first tower and runs in real time for the one-hundred and two minutes until the tower collapses. The story explores layers of humanity in times of crisis as it moves forward--the victim’s situation continually disintegrating--until the final improbable understanding that their very existence is in jeopardy.  This play, ultimately, examines the best of the American spirit and the inherent hope and compassion that resides in all of us.
