After a sell-out season in 2018, one of Australia’s favourite and most respected actors and presenters Noni Hazlehurst returns to QPAC in the critically acclaimed production of Mother.
Mother tells the story of Christie, a homeless woman in a world detached, unforgiving and destructive. It gives voice to the fallen and dispossessed, to those who exist at the edge of safety, at the point of being undone.
Written by acclaimed Australian playwright Daniel Keene, with his usual characteristic lyricism, Mother is a solo performance wrought with tenderness and loneliness in equal measure.
Winner of the 2018 Matilda Award for her role in Mother (Best Female Actor in a Leading Role), Noni Hazlehurst has been touring the production for over three years. Audiences are swept away by this moving and powerful play by one of our great writers, written especially for one of our great actors.
Please note: There will be strictly no admittance to the theatre once the performance has commenced.
“Noni Hazlehurst delivers the performance of a lifetime.” The Sydney Morning Herald
“If you want to see one of Australia’s finest actors at the height of her powers, rush out to see this. BYO compassion and don’t forget your tissues.” The Courier-Mail
“Perfect theatre; sheer entertainment with pathos interspersed with humour dark and light and a character so real that it cut deep into the heart.” Absolute Theatre
