Written by Athol Fugard
Directed by Yaël Farber
Please note that in line with guidance from the government and Society of Official London Theatre, upcoming performances of Hello and Goodbye are postponed until further notice. We will be directly in touch with ticket buyers, and will update all customers as and when we are able to safely reopen the building and commence operations. We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
It’s been fifteen years since Johnny and Hester Smit have seen one another – not since the day Hester fled to Johannesburg in search of a different life. While Hester’s world has expanded – not always for the better – Johnny’s life has been reduced to the four walls of the rundown family home, and his role caring for their infirm father.
Suddenly Hester returns one night to claim the inheritance she believes to be rightfully hers. What begins as the siblings’ search for their legacy quickly becomes a desperate pursuit for truth, understanding and a future free from the shackles of their shared heritage.
From Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard, Hello and Goodbye is a searing exploration of the claustrophobic hold the past can have on the present. Directed by multi award-winning director Yaël Farber, whose credits include Blood Wedding (Young Vic), The Crucible (Old Vic) and Mies Julie (Riverside Studios).
