Hello, Beautiful!

Drama

Presented by Araluen Arts Centre 
Written and Performed by Hannie Rayson
Directed by Matthew Lutton
Toured by Performing Lines

“Rayson’s vignettes are perfectly constructed and she is a virtuoso of self-deprecating humour.”
     Sydney Morning Herald

Hello, Beautiful! is a funny, big-hearted, one-woman show performed by one of Australia’s best-loved playwrights. Based on her best-selling memoir, Hello, Beautiful! brings you a 60-minute piece of sublime comic storytelling – true stories from an adventurous life, spiced with wit, tenderness, social observation, and intimacy.

Rayson takes you from the East Brighton of her childhood to the treacheries of Hollywood, from share-houses in Fitzroy to the beauties of rural Australia. Rayson’s life and writing has always been driven by her deep curiosity about contemporary Australian life: how we live and what matters to us – the political and ethical challenges we face.

Both as a playwright and columnist for magazines and newspapers, she has an ear for the ways we speak and a knack for understanding how our inner lives affect our public selves. You’ll be struck with many “OMG that happened to me” moments, and feel as if you’ve been listening to stories told by your new best friend.


A Performing Lines tour. Originally produced by Malthouse Theatre.
