Image from Third

"Wasserstein's last play is her wittiest, wisest, and probably her best." - The Hollywood Reporter

Laurie Jameson is a revered, fifty-four year-old professor at an elite New England college. A pioneer in her field, Laurie's seemingly well-ordered life and career slowly become unhinged when she meets Woodson Bull, III (whose friends call him "Third"), an articulate and conservative student wrestler. Laurie and Third face off in a series of confrontations over politics, ethics, and Shakespeare, forcing her to reevaluate many of her long-held beliefs. Are the differences between us really as clear as we think?

Third is the final play from celebrated playwright Wendy Wasserstein, who received the Pulitzer Prize, and Tony, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk Awards for The Heidi Chronicles. Her other credits include An American Daughter, Uncommon Women and Others, Isn't it Romantic?, and The Sisters Rosensweig, which the Huntington staged in 2005 to critical and popular acclaim.
