When a crowded elevator becomes stuck, one of the passengers, a playwriting instructor, thinks that everybody is in fact trapped in a cliched play by an inexperienced playwright. After all, the elevator does contain a quick-tempered Biker, a spaced-out New Age Woman, and an agitated Pregnant Woman. But when the Instructor goes searching for the playwright, the elevator expands to include even more stereotypes including over-eager cheerleaders, a Goth Kid who writes bad poetry and, of course, a clown. Will the Instructor find the playwright before the cliches become out of control?
