Description

Alone on stage, a three-headed person cannot decide whether he is I or we. If one head is tired will the other two help him sleep? Can a single head feel or exist on its own? The protagonist relies on a sinister servant to help him through his daily routine. He distracts himself from his dilemma with wordplay and song. But what does it mean for the routine to be broken? This darkly humorous play is a Beckettian exploration of the absurdity of habit and the difficult concept of the self.

This is a cracking show. Three women appear as one (or one presents as three?). They are tightly bound and inseparable on many levels. Impressive synchronicity and a punchy script keeps the audience totally engaged. Crow is their butler, nemesis and counterfoil. Lausulsal laususal makes some sense by the end. Four sparkling performances - or possibly two, depending on how you count.

If you want to see a pure well-delivered absurdist play, I would recommend seeing this one. An interesting production. I found the delivery of the dialogue tight and well timed. I found out after the show that the actors are from Oxford uni, and with their renowned alumni, it's always interesting to see what both Oxford and Cambridge unis are putting on at the Fringe.
