Role Description

Christian Phillips: (Supporting) to play 27 years old, works as an artist; he and Adam have been seeing each other for a total of five months (three before the play and the two months that elapse during the course of the play). Christian, at first, did not know Sam and Adam were married; eventually he realizes his own faults in tearing their marriage apart.

SAM & CHRISTIAN

SUMMARY: This scene takes place at the beginning of Act Two, two months after the explosive BBQ. This scene serves as a gateway toward Sam’s eventual moving on from Adam but also gives Christian a chance to really tell his side of the story.

Enter SAM after the stage has been cleared. He’s texting as usual. Enter CHRISTIAN.

CHRISTIAN Sam!

SAM Christian…

CHRISTIAN How are you?

SAM I’m fine…

CHRISTIAN I was actually thinking about you a couple of weeks ago.

SAM Is that right?

CHRISTIAN Yeah. I wanted to talk to you again.

SAM About what?

CHRISTIAN About Adam.

SAM I’m a little tipsy right now so the last thing I want to talk about is Adam.

CHRISTIAN I broke up with him.

SAM [A little interested] Really?

CHRISTIAN Yeah; maybe about a month now.

SAM Why?

CHRISTIAN Uh…well…he was cheating on me.

SAM Well, look at that. Karma.

CHRISTIAN I guess you can sort of say that. What about you?

SAM Me? I’m…okay, I guess.

CHRISTIAN How’s everything going with that guy you brought to your BBQ?

SAM That…didn’t work out so well.

CHRISTIAN I’m sorry.

SAM It’s fine; I’m moving on. There’s nothing for me to do about it, you know?

CHRISTIAN Still, I’m sorry. Actually, like I said to you two months ago, I’m sorry about everything. I really didn’t mean to come into your marriage and destroy it.

SAM Look, I know you’re probably saying this so that you don’t carry around some type of guilt but it’s better to just not say a word about it at all. It is what it is.

CHRISTIAN I really mean it.

SAM You never told me exactly why you continued seeing Adam even after you knew he was married.

CHRISTIAN [After a pause] The truth is…I didn’t care. It was easier for me to kind of just say ‘f**k everything else’. I liked Adam, a lot. And I know he liked me. I didn’t care what his personal life was like. All I cared about was what went on between me and him.

SAM Right. Of course…

CHRISTIAN Anyway, I gotta run. I’ll…see you around. [Exits]
