University of Oxford Student Season: Trinity Term 2022
By Nina Halpenny

Alone on stage, a three-headed person cannot decide whether he is ‘I’ or ‘we’: if one head is tired will the other two let 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.
