Juggler's Three is an Australian play by David Williamson. It was based on the breakup of his first marriage.[1]

The play was commissioned by John Sumner of the Melbourne Theatre Company in mid 1971. The play underwent many revisions, and at one stage included sequences set in Vietnam.[2] The first production was very well reviewed and later transferred from Russell St Theatre to Harry M. Miller's Melbourne Playbox Theatre, which was rare for Australian plays at the time[3]

Williamson later reworked the play again in 1996 as Third World Blues.[4]
