On Friday 30 October 2009, the Romanian Cultural Centre in London presented the rehearsed reading of Gabriel Pintilei's harrowing play for two characters, 'Elevator'.

Inspired by a real-life story, 'Elevator' won a new writing competition and was subsequently followed by successful mountings both in its native Romania as well as abroad. Currently, its award-winning film version is touring venues worldwide. The reading was followed by a Q&A session with playwright Gabriel Pintilei, Romanian-British actor and producer Cristina Catalina, and the evening's performers, actors Jessica Clark and Ryan Sampson.
