In Third, currently on stage at the Mitzi Newhouse, college professor Laurie Jameson (played by Dianne Wiest) accuses one of her students (played by Jason Ritter) of plagiarizing his paper on King Lear. Directed by Daniel Sullivan, the Lincoln Center Theater production co-stars Charles Durning, Gaby Hoffman, and Amy Aquino.
Wasserstein is also the author of such plays as The Sisters Rosensweig (currently being revived by Boston's Huntington Theatre Company), The Heidi Chronicles, and Uncommon Women and Others.
