Sam Macreadie is back…
He just can't quite remember why.
In My Old Man, human connections flicker between life and death: a nurse tries to communicate with a dying man; a woman tries to connect with her long lost and now dying father and with someone else who may be a lover, saviour or nemesis; her son, obsessed with Goth music and knives, tries to reach out to the immigrant worker next door. The thing that binds them all together is Sam Macreadie, ex-jazz musician, retired sailor and inveterate liar.
My Old Man was Tom McGrath's last play and was a moving, funny dark and sometimes disturbing look at what holds families together and what happens to the mind as it ages.
