The American In Me

Institute History

  • 1997 Theatre Lab


THE AMERICAN IN ME is a play about in-vitro fertilization and corporate downsizing. It focuses on one couple and their pursuit of the American dream. The play explores the ways in which people are affected by the corporate culture and how that culture invades all aspects of an individual’s life, making even the most private decisions, such as reproduction, a matter of economics.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
