Tickets go on sale for Hello and Goodbye at the Boulevard Theatre

Hello and Goodbye

TICKETS for Hello and Goodbye, the third show in Artistic Director Rachel Edwards’ 2020 season for the Boulevard Theatre, went on sale today (March 3, 2020) at 11am to priority members.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public tomorrow at 11am. Online booking can be accessed here.

Hello and Goodbye runs from June 12 (previews from June 4) to July 25, 2020.

Written by Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard, Hello and Goodbye is a searing exploration of the claustrophobic hold the past can have on the present. Multi award-winning director Yaël Farber (Blood Wedding, Young Vic; The Crucible, The Old Vic; Mies Julie, Riverside Studios) will direct and Soutra Gilmour, winner of the 2020 WhatsOnStage awards for Best Set Design, will be designing the set.

Casting has not yet been announced.

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.

Hello and Goodbye follows productions of Cormac McCarthy’s The Sunset Limited and Lucy Prebble’s The Effect, which runs from March 19 to May 30, 2020. Read more about the Boulevard Theatre’s new season.
