A romantic comedy with a twist.  It’s a short play about a young single woman Lily rushing to meet her first “normal” date, but her plans come to a screeching halt when she gets stuck in an elevator with a man she wants nothing to do with.  This cute story makes you realize your match might be closer than you think, you just have to pay a little more attention.  Your match might be closer than you think, you just have to pay a little more attention.
