Concord Theatricals has acquired Samantha Hurley's I'm Gonna Marry You Tobey Maguire, the Y2K comedy for fan fiction lovers that played an Off-Broadway world premiere at Nancy Manocherian’s the cell theatre in 2023. The play will be published and licensed via Concord's Samuel French imprint.

The work follows eight grader Shelby Hinkley as she deals with an absent father, a neglectful mother, and mean-spirited classmates. To cope with it all, Shelby focuses on the best thing about 2004: Spider-Man. When leading an online fan club is no longer enough, she decides to kidnap and marry Tobey Maguire.

"A playwright can’t ask for much more than having their play be a part of such an iconic catalog like Samuel French," says Hurley in a statement. “It’s truly a pinch-me honor to be able to have my very first show championed by the incredible team at Concord Theatricals. I can’t wait to have this silly, kooky play reach audiences all over the world."

The play was originally produced by Jacob Stuckelman of Watermark Productions.
