New York Water

A Comedy

By Sam Bobrick

2 Acts – 4 Scenes

4 minimal sets

2 Characters – 1 man, 1 woman

Linda Shoup, a receptionist and Albert Hives, a CPA, two New York singles who have just met, feel they have been held back by the city. We follow them as they try to make a go of it in Davenport, Iowa, Los Angeles and then, no longer together, meeting back in New York. While Linda turns out to be a dynamo with killer instincts, even becoming a major player in the movie business, poor Albert finds himself falling further and further down the ladder of success. Although his love for Linda is overwhelming, Albert slowly comes to realize he is no match for her.




(A couple in their mid-thirties)

The sets are suggestive; Linda's New York apartment, their modest Davenport home, their LA mansion and finally a vacant New York apartment.


"... a laugh a line ... something serious to say about relationships, values and the quality of life..." – Ursula Albert, Lewiston Maine Sun Journal
