The Lying Kind

by Anthony Neilson

The Lying Kind

Fasten your sleigh bells! In The Lying Kind, Anthony Neilson takes classic British farce and twists it, hard. It’s Christmas Eve in London, and two hapless policemen must deliver tragic news to an elderly couple. When they try to hide the truth, the consequences are immediate, dire, and side-splitting. With flirty septuagenarians, fearsome vigilantes, misplaced chihuahuas, stodgy vicars and, or course, naughty underwear, it’s the perfect Third Rail Christmas offering.

American Buffalo

by David Mamet

American Buffalo

One of David Mamet’s earliest successes, this comic drama of shifting loyalty, unspoken jealousy, and lurking desperation is considered an American classic. Three men living just this side of destitution plan a robbery. The loot is a rare coin collection, but American Buffalo‘s real currency is language. The dialogue is unmistakably Mamet’s: clipped, elliptical, profane, but also poetic and telling.

The Gray Sisters

by Craig Wright

The Gray Sisters

After seeing Third Rail’s award-winning production of his play Grace, Craig Wright offered to pen a script specifically for Third Rail’s luminous actresses. In The Gray Sisters, four sisters unravel their family’s history, and in the process grapple with questions of love, loyalty, faith, and fate.
