Elevator to Heaven By Michael James Stewart


Michael James Stewart

Peter is a sixty year-old, neatly groomed, operator of a brass-cage elevator in a simple, clean, but run-down, circa 1930, apartment building in downtown Toronto. Working Monday to Friday, from noon to midnight, Peter is mainly kept busy taking passengers up to the penthouse level and Heaven.

Having just taken someone up, as he waits for his next scheduled passenger, Peter discusses his forty-five years of faithful service; how he met his wife up there; and, how she and he are only five years away from retirement.

Elevator To Heaven is a whimsical play which contains humour, emotions and a few life-lessons, in spite of its’ briefness.
