When an elevator crashes in a major city, nine lives intersect in surprising ways--through love and sex, poetry and dentistry, in offices, homes, and hotel rooms. By turns comic and profound, Hope and Gravity traces the delicate and miraculous threads that connect us all.

“Brilliantly structured and hilariously written.”
-Dallas/Fort Worth Star-Telegram


Cuando un ascensor se estrella en una ciudad importante, nueve vidas se cruzan de maneras sorprendentes—a través del amor y el sexo, la poesía y la odontología, en oficinas, hogares y habitaciones de hotel. A su vez cómica y profunda, la Esperanza y la Gravedad enlazan los hilos delicados y milagrosos que nos conectan a todos.


Hope and Gravity will be performed at Plays & Players Theatre,
1714 Delancey Place, Philadelphia, PA 19103
