Hello, Beautiful!

What does it take to understand the soul of Australia?

Hello, Beautiful! is a funny, big-hearted show performed by one of Australia’s best-loved playwrights, Hannie Rayson. Based on her best-selling memoir, this show is a piece of sublime comic storytelling – true stories from an adventurous life from her childhood in East Brighton to the treacheries of Hollywood, from share-houses in Fitzroy to the beauty of rural Australia.

Hello, Beautiful! is Hannie’s own one-woman show - a 60-minute piece of comic storytelling. Written and performed in the style of David Sedaris, Nora Ephron and Spalding Gray, hers are true stories from a life spiced with wit, social observation, and intimacy. As the author of 14 plays including Hotel Sorrento and Life After George (which made playwriting history as the first play to be nominated for the Miles Franklin Award) Hannie Rayson is warm, self-effacing and hilarious as she shares her experiences.

60 minutes plus a post show Q&A session with Michael Cathcart following both performances at The Engine Room.
