Third Person is a comedic play about a working-class American family whose patriarch, Buck, is hit by lighting, forever changing the way he interacts with the world. Following the lightning strike, Buck can’t help but narrate his life as it is going on, giving us his internal monologue at every moment, and ultimately divulging family secrets of mayhem and murder. Third Person is a poignant story about the crumbling of the working class family in America, and how the powerful tool of storytelling can help rebuild and reunite us. Written by Dan Kitrosser, directed by Matt Pavik, and featuring a handful of Bag&Baggage favorites in this one-night-only staged reading!
