Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday


Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday
By Roslyn Oades & Collaborators
Toured by Performing Lines

Roslyn Oades went to an 18th and an 80th birthday party in the same week. Her Malthouse Theatre and Melbourne Festival hit Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday celebrates these two milestone birthdays; major transition points in adult life.

One represents untold potential and opportunity; the other a lifetime of experiences, aspirations, fears and memories. Scripted from intimate real-life conversations with people either side of these milestones, Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday is a beautifully warm and human new show from Roslyn Oades & Collaborators.

Playful and affecting in equal measure, this show sees Oades continue her ground-breaking ‘headphone verbatim’ documentary theatre technique, to create extraordinarily immediate and vivid performances.

"one of the most charming shows of the year. Hello, Goodbye, Happy Birthday is a truly celebratory glimpse of the vitality and resistance of two groups of people often marginalised or portrayed in ageist stereotypes." - ABC Arts
