ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the theatrical play "Third Person," by Andrew Rosenthal. The play is based on the subject of homosexuality. The story surrounds four people, an architect, his wife, his little daughter and a guest who is the architect's old friend and is a homosexual obsessed with this young architect. The style opted by the author in this play is a simple, uninflated prose, concise and witty. One admires above all else in the show the sustaining of a low-pitched yet intense and intelligent dialogue.
