SAM & CAROL
A PLAY WHERE EVERYTHING IS TRUE
Sam & Carol is written as a tour de force for a pair of actors, who in two acts play a dozen roles each, covering the span of my parents’ 35 year marriage. “I figured in writing this play that every family, every two people who find each other, stay together, make a home and raise children, has at its core myths and true tales of immense courage, luck, struggle and grandeur, even in the smallest moments. Sam & Carol tries to capture the marvel of a family.” David L. Robbins, playwright
Here’s a link to an excellent interview with actors Nick Aliff and Eva DeVirgilis, and director Jan Powell.
And here is a television interview, featuring a three-minute excerpt from the play, where Eva plays Robbins’ grandma Rose meeting his mother, Carol, for the first time. Enjoy.
