THE STORY: 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 barely perceivable threads that connect us all.
“…gently humorous and smart…satisfying, crowd-pleasing…[Hollinger] gives [the audience] jokes and physical comedy…and a dollop of poignancy and hope, of course, to send them home happy.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “[Hollinger] balances…unabashedly poetic language with shameless low humor and seasons the whole enterprise with intelligence, compassion and just good old-fashioned quality playwriting." —Pittsburgh City Paper. “…brilliantly structured and hilariously written…[An] artfully non-linear script…rich and funny…” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
