ArtsWest to Present THIRD, March 5-22

Opening March 5, 2014, ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery presents the last play by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein.

This witty, wry play, tells the story of a college professor who has her life in seemingly good order. Wife, mother, professor - all lined up in a neat row - until it isn't, thanks to an outwardly stereotypical jock who throws her world into disarray when she accuses him of plagiarizing his essay on King Lear. In challenging Woodson Bull III (Third), our professor is forced to question her aggressively feminist ideology, standards, and family relationships. Full circle moment - is she in danger of becoming exactly everything she has been railing against?

Running March 5 - March 22, Wednesdays thru Saturdays - 7:30pm, Sundays - 3pm. Tickets can be purchased at, by phone 206.938.0339, or in person Thursdays & Fridays 1-7:30pm, Saturdays 1:30-7:30pm.
