Roslyn Oades’ hit Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday celebrates two milestone birthdays—18 and 80—both major transition points in adult life. One represents untold potential, the other, the accumulation of a lifetime of experiences, the aspirations, fears and memories. Scripted from intimate real-life conversations with people either side of these milestones, Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday is the powerful, beautifully warm and human work from Roslyn Oades & Collaborators.

Playful and affecting in equal measure, this show sees Oades continue her ground-breaking ‘headphone verbatim’ documentary theatre technique, to create extraordinarily immediate and vivid performances.

The source material for this project is the result of extensive interviews with community members aged 80 and over, followed by a similar process with participants aged 18. Immersed in the institutional environments of nursing homes and high schools, this work explores the threshold from child into adulthood—from self-sufficient adult into aged-care dependency. Audiences are offered a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on the conversations of those grappling with how to say goodbye and those trying to work out where to begin.
