Mother

Date: 17 Jan 2018

Written for Noni Hazlehurst by playwright Daniel Keene, Mother introduces its audience to Christie, a homeless alcoholic driven to tell her story.

It gives voice to the fallen and dispossessed, to those who exist at the edge of safety, at the point of being undone.

“Audiences around¬†the country should jump at the chance to see Hazlehurst perform in this haunted, confronting work,” wrote Cameron Woodhead in The Age.
