Nelson is the story of a young man caught between two worlds. By day, he works as a low-level assistant to a film talent agent. By night, Nelson is the camera man for an underground, gang-related videotape series. As the videos become increasingly dangerous and popular, Nelson develops an overwhelming obsession with a C-List actress. Eventually, Nelson's two worlds collide with disturbing, unsettling results. The play is a darkly comic look at the guilt dream of a man trying to find something authentic in a world of two very different kinds of film.
"A funny-creepy play by Sam Marks" - Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
"Marks continues to offer a fresh urban voice. Nelson grabs your ear from the outset with its halting staccato street talk, and in the fine office scenes, Nelson’s racist boss attacks him with a Mamet-like patter of disdaining sarcasm." - Time Out New York
