Full Length Play


A contemporary film noir, Something in the Air takes place in a nameless American city where a man, Walker, has hit rock bottom. He finds himself in the office of Neville, a man he believes is a psychoanalyst who can help him. But Neville turns out to be a financial analyst, and he offers Walker the one sure-fire investment left: buying the life insurance policy of a dying man. The man, Cram, will get money to live out his days, and Walker will get the big payoff when Cram dies. It's a diabolically brilliant plan except for the uncomfortable fact that Cram doesn't die. Walker, who has fallen in love with Sloan, a beautiful mysterious woman, is on the head of a pin. He has befriended Cram, but his future happiness depends on Cram dying. In a shadowy urban landscape, Walker is forced to face up to how he will go, torn between the dark forces that have trapped him and the fragile love that just might be enough to save him. Unit set. Approximate running time: 2 hours.
