The Second Breakfast Company presents their second production of the 2018 main season. ‘The Old Woman and the Ox’ (2017) is a play written by 20-year-old playwright, Isaiah Christopher Lee, which explores the entangled currents of fear, guilt, loss and love.

Set against the absurdist backdrop of a crumbling house, the play follows Aileen and the ghosts of her memories as she seeks for something she cannot find except within herself. Aileen has grown disenchanted and apathetic after the traumatic events of her past. But what happens when her past returns to haunt her and she is forced to face her biggest fear of all – the truth?

Inspired by his mother and grandmother, this tale blurs the lines of surrealism and reality to crystallise what it means to grapple with the abnormal mind. It delves into what it means to mother and be mothered, but more importantly the realities of our eternal search for answers.
