Trapped inside are two men on their way to work ...
Charles, a highly-paid white corporate attorney, exemplifies society’s definition of worldly success
Bruce is the building’s African-American janitor who struggles to make financial ends meet
At first glance the two men seem to have very little in common
But Bruce and Charles are not strangers - a tragic event occurred years before that connects them
The tragedy was avoidable but who should take the blame for what happened?
Tensions mount as accusations are hurled and both men struggle to defend themselves, their viewpoints and their choices
Winner of the Daimler-Chrysler Dreambuilder award, Elevator examines the role that race and class play in determining a person’s success in the world
It also raises questions about society’s traditional definition of “success”
Elevator has an intimacy that rarely goes with racial debates
Far too often we discuss our differences in magazines, town meetings and courtrooms, but rarely in its most effective place - a heartfelt exchange
