10 minute drama
1 man, 1 woman, 1 either
About the play: Soft-spoken administrative assistant Susan leaves work late on a Friday afternoon and gets stuck in the elevator with a handsome man. He strikes up a conversation, asking her questions about her job, marriage, and aspirations. One thing leads to another and the next thing you know, he asks her out to dinner. Or does he? The fact that she’s made up her life-story is not the twist in this quick, impactful, easy to perform and with virtually no props.
