We meet a couple on their first date. He has a wild scheme to sell his personality to the highest bidding corporation. She has cancer. Despite circumstances threatening to take them both “off the market,” they make plans to meet again. Elevada explores family ties, tango, and romance under the most unlikely circumstances. Expect to be whisked off your feet with Callaghan’s incisively witty romantic comedy.

Running time is 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.

“Sheila Callaghan is like the Houdini of playwrights… It’s abracadabra dramaturgy; it’s writing that turns by magic crank.”
—Lily Janiak | SF Datebook
“Bright, upbeat, contemporary entertainment, skillfully directed”
—Emily S. Mendel | Berkeleyside
