Threesome Without Simone

December 2017

Performer

A psychological thriller involving three classmates accused of a horrible crime, based on the script by Kristo Sagor.

Love and obsession. Admiration and desire. Confidence and contempt. Fine lines differentiating one from the other. Three young men rounded up for a police interrogation investigating a sexual assault. Almost strangers, but much more.

Based on an adaptation from a play by the same name written by Kristo Sagor, this production follows the lives of three boys – Raghav, Sarthak and Krishnan – who have been accused of molesting a girl named Simone. The three know her in different contexts and were the last people she met a day before the "incident". While they wait to be exonerated, they engage in conversations edging from trivial to intimate to insane, as these men dismantle each other, revealing male egos left naked and lurching. What happens when the fine lines start to blur?

This play features one of the most intriguing characters I've played over the last few years – Steve. The character, who is the present boyfriend of the girl in question, goes through multiple emotions – obsession, guilt, hurt, defiance, arrogance. His behavior repeatedly blurs the lines between love, lust, and abuse. Perhaps there is a Steve, or a fragment of his personality, in all of us. Perhaps we all know Steve or two. The character made me reach deep within my own struggles from fragile human relationships and left a lasting impact on my psyche.
