Sam I Am

Full-length play (one act)

What does it take to step into somebody else’s life? Sam Kenner, a young woman adrift, wins her dream job, taking over Sam Krantz’s electrical supply company. The catch is, she also has to take over his entire life – husband to his wife, father to his teenage kids – so he can run off on his new Harley. Just as Sam starts to think she’s making headway integrating into the family, she is foiled by a sequence of events involving a dead dog, a missing child, an electrical fire, and the Trojan Horse.


The original one-act play was a semifinalist in the 16th Annual 15-Minute Play Festival at the American Globe Theatre in New York, NY, directed by Scott C. Embler. It had its west coast premiere at The New American Theatre 17th Annual Festival of New One Act Plays.


An excerpt from the full play had a public reading with Momentum Repertory Company. It received its first full developmental reading with Active Theater Company, directed by Sarah Shahanian.
