The Phoebe and Otto Premiere Series

Hope and Gravity

Apr. 26—May 20, 2018


Written by Michael Hollinger

Directed by Jennifer Childs


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.




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.
