In plays for three actors, everyone is fighting their own battle in a sharp-cornered ring, which flings them together and then apart. These seven plays from writers across the country paint a dark and mainly urban picture of Canada in the first decade of the new millennium. Love is variously celebrated and thrown away. As is tolerance. As is hope. Many of the characters are running as hard as they can away from themselves. At the same time, they are endearing, caustic, funny, and very human.
Three on the Boards features full-length and one-act scripts for three actors written by Canadian playwrights. The plays in the volume represent various production options; they have appeared on the main stage, in alternative theatres or non-traditional theatre spaces, at the fringe, and in professional workshops.
