Take one closet writer of romantic fiction, her beloved local vicar, her philandering husband and a girl on the loose – add in a devotion to literature, a fast car and a captivating length of chain – and you have Just the Three of Us, where love, lust and a smiling refusal to say no can have frightening and exhilarating consequences. Just the Three of Us stylishly mixes the comic and the macabre to achieve a thoroughly entertaining play that is both tense and surprisingly touching.
