A short play about three young Israelis caught up in a hostage situation.
Stephen Laughton's play Three is a bold and terrifying examination of young lives exposed to bitter hostility in a remorseless conflict.
The play was written in response to the kidnap and murder of three Israeli teenagers, Naftali Frankel, Gilad Shaer and Eyal Yifrah, in the West Bank in June 2014.
Note for performers: there are no 'directions' for Three. According to an author's note, it 'can be read by ten people; it can be read by a hundred'.
'Tell them it’s gonna be ok
Tell them it wasn’t us
Tell them it’s a mistake
Tell them this is our home'
