Three very different men arrive in the same room, all for very different reasons. They find themselves trapped together for the night with bizarre, irrational, almost miraculous incidents happening all around them. As the night wears on, they find themselves confronted with questions about mortality, God, and the meaning of life.

Three on a Seesaw, by Milan playwright Luigi Lunari, is an absurdist comedy in the tradition of Waiting For Godot and has enjoyed success all around the world for over 25 years. This unique North American English translation was first produced by Calgary’s Fire Exit Theatre in 2015, and now Ginger & Rosemary Theatre is producing it in Edmonton for the first time.

Ginger & Rosemary Theatre is a new Edmonton and Strathcona County theatre collective dedicated to finding hidden gems to produced such as Three on a Seesaw. For more information, visit gingerandrosemary.com.
