Three Parts is a study of relationships, an orchestration of interior monologues, and a tone poem for voices. By turns funny and bleak and beautiful, it explores the timing of memory and experience.

'Because a memory can be so suggestive. It can be all you need.'

Three Parts is written in a unique form of verbal counterpoint. The actors' lines, rather than following one another, overlay and flow through each other, like the parts of a string quartet. Accordingly in book form the text is laid out like music, with the lines running in parallel (see).
