Jewell Theater Play
HELLO AND GOODBYE
by Athol Fugard
March 1-18, 2012

“When asked to name my favorite among the 50 years of playwriting that lie behind me now at the age of 76, Hello and Goodbye is without fail one of the three that comes to mind. It joins Blood Knot in being the moment nearly half a century ago when I discovered my own voice as a playwright,” said Fugard, who has been described by Time Magazine as the greatest active playwright in the English-speaking world.

Set in the kitchen of a railway house in Port Elizabeth in 1963, the play softly cauterizes the wounded lives of its characters. A brother and sister who have not seen each other for years, unpack boxes and suitcases in search of an elusive inheritance and in so doing unpack the memories and truths of their empty and damaged lives and find hope where they never expected it.
