Following two years of touring, Noni Hazlehurst shines, bringing her stellar one-woman show to the Belvoir.
Directed by Matt Scholten and written by Daniel Keen, Mother is the story of Christie, an alcoholic, homeless woman relaying her life’s experiences to the audience.
With a superbly designed set from Kat Chan and evocative lighting and sound from Tom Willis and Darius Kedros respectively, audiences are transported to Christie’s world on the streets of Melbourne. Giving a voice to the dispossessed existing at the fringes of society, Mother is an insightful exploration of the need to demonstrate compassion for those struggling to survive.
Vulnerable, honest and intensely personal, Hazlehurst’s moving performance is not to be missed.
Jan 24-Feb 11. Belvoir, 18 & 25 Belvoir St, Surry Hills. $33-$59+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.belvoir.com.au
