Sam Graber has become widely heralded as the world’s skinniest playwright.
His plays have been staged by Abingdon Theatre (off-off-Broadway), Seven Stories Theatre (WV), Mission Theatre (MN), Box Wine Theatre (MN), Seven Collective (NYC), The Warner Theatre (CT), Upstage Theatre (TX), The Pulp Stage (OR), Mildred’s Umbrella (TX), City Theatre of Independence (MO), The Driftwood Players (WA), Venture Theatre (MT), Love Creek Productions (NYC), Radio Theater Project (FL), Collaboraction (IL), Between Us Productions (NYC) and Abstract Sentiment Theatre (NYC).
After FISH! The Musical! was taken to Las Vegas in 2009, one-acts The Future Of Hawaii, Summer Tough, Wedding Song and Unquestionable Evil were staged at various 2010 and 2011 national festivals, which got the ball rolling. His full-length In Congress with the Night received its 2012 debut at Seven Stories Theatre, and Lottery Play earned a Top Ten honor for the 2013 Reva Shiner comedy award.
In 2013, What Happened to the Dollar, Modern Prophet and Freedom Tower each received world premiere performances. In 2014, Selection Day, Detainee and Fields of Strength will each mainstage premiere for three different theater companies. Yes, three new full-length plays in one year. I am insane.
His work is published by Dramatic Publishing, Smith & Kraus, and Independent Play(w)rights.
He lives outside Minneapolis where the temperature is currently 406 degrees colder than wherever you are. He resides there with a wife, two kids and a goldfish which means that he is, at best, the fifth most important person in his house.
