“The best works of art are the ones where you see yourself and the people you know blended into a phrase or a gesture and it makes you pause and reflect and say ‘yes, exactly.'”

We Three was made possible through the generous support of Tarragon Theatre’s Workspace.

Synopsis

Throughout University, Blaire, Jamie and Skye were best friends. Now years later Blaire has a new life – wife to an investment banker, executive assistant to an oil tycoon – while Jamie and Skye live in the same house the three inhabited throughout school, one a freelance journalist the other a PHD candidate. Though all would like nothing better than to fall back into their old loving ways, tensions run high as Blaire enters revealing the newest addition to her life: breast implants.

Fall into the world of three best friends where the mundane is as important as the immense, where tragedy can become comedy, and where no topic is off limits.

Praise

Critics

“We Three is Spectacular…one of the most important shows in Toronto right now” – Mooney On Theatre

“The writing is smart, edgy, real and very funny – the performances are strong and beautifully nuanced”- Life with more cowbell

From the Audience

“A funny, sad, and painfully real slice of life story.”

“Seriously, you guys. If you’re a millennial, you need to see this play. If you’re not a millennial, but have millennials in your life and want to understand them better, you need to see this play. If you just love good, locally created, cleverly written theatre, you need to see this play.”

“I could see aspects of myself in all three of these beautifully rounded, flawed, intelligent, human characters.”
