Weight is a post-dramatic exploration of the pain, isolation and irony of education in modern society. Trapped in a stairwell, a solitary school student plods upward with an enormous suitcase. A lifetime of received demands, expectations, and remarks pervade the air, assailing her with every step. In her fatigue, she slips into memories of a distant father whose gaze somehow never leaves her. Will she ever understand what she continues to climb for? And what awaits her at the top?
