Plot: Behind Closed Doors is an original play consisting of two acts with two scenes per act.  Each scene serves as a vignette that focuses on the different residents who reside on the fifth floor of a tenement building located in the downtown area of a metropolitan city.  As the play progresses the individual stories of each act begin to overlap and intersect with one another.
