Full press release

A riotous and hilarious piece of new writing by hotly tipped young Scottish writer, the award winning DC Jackson.

Julie and Andrew are a young Glaswegian couple looking to initiate a new moment of sexual adventure. The arrival of Mark represents exactly that, as the three engage in a pivotal tryst that offers more than any of them bargained for. As the characters wake on the morning after their sexual liaison, Threeway becomes a riotous body-swap comedy, tackling issues of race, social and sexual politics, and primal human curiosity.

The cast is made up of Joe Dixon (Olivier Award Nominee 2004, RSC), Gabriel Quigley (National Theatre of Scotland) & Brian Ferguson (National Theatre of Scotland, RSC).

Daniel C. Jackson is a young Glasgow-based writer. His first full-length play The Wall (Borderline Theatre Company) premiered at the Tron Theatre in 2008, and he received a Best New Play nomination at that year's Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland. DC won a Fringe First in 2010 for My Romantic History (Bush Theatre/Sheffield Theatres in association with Birmingham Rep), which was adapted for BBC Radio 4.

In 2012, Jackson's The Marriage of Figaro, premiered at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, and he is currently under commission to write new plays for the National Theatre of Scotland. Jackson is also writing an episode for the third series of television comedy drama Fresh Meat (Channel 4).

Director Phillip Breen is one of the most sought-after young directors in the country, fresh from taking on directorial duties for the RSC (The Merry Wives of Windsor - "Phillip Breen's intelligent, richly entertaining, modern-dress show" - SUNDAY TIMES)). Previously, at the Fringe, Breen directed Humphrey Ker is Dymock Watson: Nazi Smasher! (Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer 2011), Stefan Golaszewski Speaks About A Girl He Once Loved (Fringe First Winner 2008), and Cambridge Footlights: Far Too Happy (Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee 2001). This is his first collaboration with DC Jackson. Elsewhere, Breen is directing Holes by Tom Basden.
