Samuel J. and K

July 7 – 18

by Mat Smart
Directed by Justin Waldman

Samuel J. surprises his adopted brother, Samuel K., with a trip back to his birth country of Cameroon for college graduation—but Samuel K. has no desire to face a place and a past that abandoned him. Samuel J. and K. challenges the traditional definitions of family and asks if a place we’ve only imagined can become home overnight. Festival Artistic Associate Justin Waldman directs this hard-charging world premiere after a successful reading as part of Fridays@3 last summer.
