Threeway (Invisible Dot Ltd.)

By | Published on Thursday 8 August 2013

Looking for pansexual adventure, Julie and Andrew invite a man they found on the internet into their home. It’s the morning after ‘the event’, however, that the real adventure begins, as the threesome wake to find their bodies are no longer theirs. Playwright DC Jackson uses the body-swap to springboard into racism, sexism, social and sexual politics and relationships. It’s a very refreshing take on both ‘relationship’ plays and the ‘body-swap’ genre, refusing consistently to remain in either category, parodying itself and others of its type. The characters are fantastic, believable and well-developed, and the performances are sensational. Using an absurd situation to cast light on human interaction, ‘Threeway’ is beautifully original and utterly hilarious.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug (not 12), 12.30pm.
