Threesome

Award-winning local playwright Yussef El Guindi (PILGRIMS MUSA AND SHERI IN THE NEW WORLD; RAMAYANA) returns to ACT with a new play that weaves issues ripped from world headlines into an intimate and personal story. Co-Produced by Portland Center Stage and ACT, this production is directed by Chris Coleman and will soon premiere Off-Broadway.

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, cultural identity, possession, and independence.

Off-Broadway’s acclaimed 59E59 Theater has just announced that this production will travel to Manhattan with the same cast to perform Threesome for New York City audiences. El Guindi was also the 2013 winner of the Steinberg/ACTA Award – the nation’s largest new play award for his play Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World which premiered here at ACT and was developed at the Icicle Creek New Play Festival.
