Full Length Play

Dramatic Comedy

Sir Marcus Pennington appears to have it all: a beautiful actress wife, Victoria, two loving daughters and a successful career as a respected barrister. But behind the façade he is leading a triple life, romancing two other women: Dexie, a prostitute, and Millicent, the widow of his best friend, now his PA. In a series of highly engaging monologues, Victoria, Dexie and Millicent tell Marcus's story from three very different perspectives. Preoccupied and detached, Victoria is seemingly oblivious to his indiscretions — and guilty of her own — but regards him with fond indulgence. Shy, self-deprecating Millicent can't help but be taken in by the promise of romance and passion that was lacking in her marriage. Dexie hopes that Marcus will provide a route out of poverty — all the more necessary after she gives birth to his illegitimate son. With excellent characterisation and vivid dialogue, The Threefold Cord provides three very rewarding roles for actresses.
