The first play presented at La Mama was Jack Hibberd's Three Old Friends – a micro-play, which has been performed every decade since 1968 at La Mama. It was presented as part of Brainrot, subtitled "as an evening of Pathology and Violence, Love and Friendship". Three Old Friends is Pinteresque in style with a powerful menacing mood as the hapless Steve is circled and toyed with by his 'friends' Ron and Herb and the play spirals to a dangerous denouement. The play has been described as a battle for dominance and razor sharp examination of mateship.
