About this show

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein's last play crackles with the wit, intelligence, and wryness that made her one the most prominent female playwrights of the last 20 years. In Third, Wasserstein tells the story of college professor Laurie Jameson, whose seemingly well-ordered life as a wife, mother and daughter is thrown into disarray when she accuses a student of plagiarism. While challenging the student, she is forced to question her own beliefs, standards and relationships with her family. Third performs at the McGuire Proscenium staged; Casey Stangl directs.
