Meet Sam Underwood – Ed Fringe 2015


My name is Sam Underwood. I am a British actor, based in NY. I moved over to the US nine years ago to study musical theater, and whilst working as an actor, I founded Fundamental Theater Project, a theater company dedicated to supporting international artists. One Day When We Were Young by Nick Payne is the beautiful and tragic story of Violet and Violet, and their would-be romance. The play earnestly explores the ideas of love and fate, and ultimately the ties that truly bind us.
