Going Up?: An Antiphonal Monologue (Paperback)
This is an intense drama laced with wit and humor. A top level executive and a cleaning lady share an elevator for an evening. Why? They are stuck and nobody knows it. The pair exchange thoughts on life, work, love, and God. For some reason the elevator disarms the defense mechanisms normally in effect and the two talk--really talk about things people would like to talk about. The edginess, banter, and tears mix up this confined encounter that leads to truth, revelation, retreat, and more truth. It is called an antiphonal monologue for reasons only the final minutes will reveal. This is a challenging play for the stage as there are only two actors and one scene. There is no off stage time to recompose. This is for the serious drama club, community theater, or professional actor. It has the potential to breach areas often left overlooked.
