Hello and Goodbye

Elysium Theatre

Port Elizabeth, the 1960s: brother and sister Johnnie and Hester Smits have not seen each other in years. Hester left for good when she was a teenager, Johnnie stayed to look after their invalid father.

When Hester returns to claim the birthright she believes is hers, the stage is set for a moving, poetic, punchy drama of sibling rivalry, family and the debts we owe each other, financial and otherwise.

Elysium Theatre are based in Durham. Their goal is to bring the best of world theatre to the North of England and their recent Northumberland-set Miss Julie won a British Theatre Guide award in 2019.
