A Room Somewhere presents Athol Fugard's Hello and Goodbye
Hello and Goodbye is set in the home of a poor white family in 1960s Apartheid South Africa. In a literary dance that steps between Beckett-like absurdity and the realism of Sam Shepard or Tennessee Williams, Fugard does a deep dive into a family torn apart by a toxic mix of self-loathing, lethal patriarchy, and the violence of the country in which it is set. The domestic collides with the political, as siblings Hester and Johnnie reconnect (and disconnect) in their childhood home, rummaging through the remnants of their lives in search of redemption, a father figure, legitimacy and cold, hard cash.
Directed by Bo Petersen, and featuring Riaan Smit and Deborah Vieyra. Along with a diverse team of South African and Canadian talent; with Olivia Etey as Stage Manager, Keagan Elrick as Lighting Designer, and original music composed by Thomas Beckman.
