Meet Laurie Jameson, a revered, 54 year-old professor at an elite New England college. A pioneer in her field, Laurie's well-ordered life and career slowly become unhinged when she meets Woodson Bull III (whos 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 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 Price, 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.
