So I Was At A Threesome Last Week

Sons of Tremendous—Creative Manitoba

The show features two “bros” relating a story about how they ended up in the midst of a threesome; if you look for any more depth than that, you won’t find it. It’s a singular topic but it’s one that they cover quite well. Ask a hormonal teenage boy just reaching manhood what he thinks about engaging in a threesome. You know what the answer is likely to be—but what if the threesome involves two guys and one girl? What if the other guy is your friend?

This exploration digs into the psyche of what happens when the situation actually knocks at your door? True to the subject, this is not a road to personal actualisation or enlightenment; this is more of a high school boys’ night out where they tell tales of conquest.

It’s funny but not hilarious. If you’re looking for a light-hearted laugh to lighten the evening, this show’s for you. If you’re looking for a coming-of-age growth saga, this isn’t it.

The main entrance requires you to climb 75 steps up four floors—don’t let that stop you from seeing the show though. If you have mobility problems, the kind folks at Creative Manitoba are happy to lead you to their elevator.
