A World Premiere! Leila and Rashid, Egyptian Americans with ties to Cairo, attempt to solve their relationship issues by inviting a relative stranger into their bedroom to engage in a threesome. What begins as a hilariously awkward evening soon becomes an experience fraught with secrets, raising issues of sexism, possession and independence. Threesome is a proud co-production with A Contemporary Theater (ACT) in Seattle, Washington.

Wm. Steven Humphrey | Portland Mercury [Review 09 Feb 2015]

Simultaneously Funny, Thought-Provoking, and Brave

“Playwright El Guindi has built an elaborate, intellectual, and dense treatise, where sex, international politics, and feminism intersect. ... Make no mistake; this show is worthy of your time and attention.”

Truly Spectacular

“What a powerful, hilarious, and expertly crafted and performed play. In turns both charming and infuriating, silly and serious, comedic and tragic. A deft balancing act to be sure.”
