The Lift

Love. Risk. & Escalation.

June 18-21 & 25-29,  2015

703 West Housatonic St. Pittsfield MA

A tender & subversive Dark Comedy about love, desire, and escalation with 6 actors, a tiny piano, a saw & an upright base, and a 20-person audience at a time.  The Lift featured a collaboratively devised script, original film montage, and a

bit of Burlesque thrown in for good measure, and was staged on 3 floors of a warehouse building using an Industrial Elevator.
