Threesome

20 January - 6 February 2010

by Hal Iggulden

Threesome is a bloody dark comedy from Hal Iggulden, author of the phenomenally successful Dangerous Book for Boys.

A cautionary tale about Internet dating gone wrong, two wannabe ‘It girls’ are saddled with university debt and maxed out credit cards during the January sales. They come up with a clever idea to earn a little extra cash and pay for their expensive way of life and all that shopping. Internet sex for a price. Enter Colin a blond, muscular, good-looking ex-soldier who is not all that he seems to be and certainly not what was advertised.

An evening of mayhem, horror and humour spirals out of control as the girls get themselves entangled in a web of sex, money and Phil Collins.

‘A joyous comedy, ninety minutes of impure fun but leave your inhibitions and any prudish tendencies behind’
– Surrey Comet

‘Feydeau, the master, could hardly have done better and it has just that tinge of social satire that makes the genre so very acceptable to the intelligent’
– Chiswick Times

‘never dull and is well-performed by the cast… genuinely funny moments’
– The Stage

N.B. This play is not suitable for children
