"Three of a Kind" by Michael Weems
Jamie and Reese, a terribly mismatched couple on their second date, are baffled when triplets are left on Jamie's doorstep. Jamie optimistically accepts the challenge to raise the children, but struggles to convince Reese that this was meant to be. After they retreat to their parents for sage advice, the couple meets at the hospital to make their final decision.
Hold on. The story isn't over yet.
When reading this did you presume Jamie was female and Reese male? You're ½ correct. This story will see its lead actors perform once, swap roles/genders, and then perform the show once again. "Three of a Kind" is a modern exploration on preconceived gender roles in today's society coupled with the story of this young couple's challenge.
