Third Rail is proud to present this world premiere by local playwright Ebbe Roe Smith. In this hilariously skewed comedy of domestic dysfunction, traditional 1950s family values are shaken up and thrown at the wall as three children (played by adults) struggle to survive their upbringing.


“With Ebbe Roe Smith’s world premiere play, Third Rail Repertory Theatre once again delivers what audiences have come to expect from the company: a provocative story offered with technical precision and superb acting.” –Portland Tribune

“Third Rail’s world premiere of local playwright Ebbe Roe Smith’s Number Three is funny, disturbing, and stylistically compelling…Third Rail delivers everything they’ve become known for: note-perfect performances; engaging, effective technical design; and thoughtful direction…. As a piece of theater, it ranks among the best Portland has to offer.” –Portland Mercury

“The five-person cast is uniformly terrific.” –The Oregonian

“An excellent production of a chilling and hilarious play.” –Willamette Week
