Noni Hazlehurst in 

MOTHER by Daniel Keene

Directed by Matt Scholten

MOTHER, a one-woman play written for acclaimed, award winning actor Noni Hazlehurst (A Place To Call Home) is the newest work from Daniel Keene directed by his long-time collaborator Matt Scholten.

Christie (Noni Hazlehurst) has found herself at the fringe of the world.  Homeless, aging, living on the outskirts of suburbia, she attracts the curiosity of the locals with the story of her colourful, troubled life. Christie’s story is part truth, part fiction, and even she is no longer sure which is which. Beneath her wild exaggerations and fantastic tales of loves lost and struggles overcome there are the haunting truths that that she would rather forget.

Delving into the significance of our primary relationships, this provocative performance will leave you haunted with understanding and sympathy for those living on the farthest edges of society.

“Matt’s productions of Daniel Keene’s work have been wonderful, and I have the greatest respect for Daniel’s writing. I believe he is one of the best playwrights we have. I have wanted to do a one-person show for many years, and am delighted that Daniel and Matt are keen to work with me to present something of substance, intelligence and heart”. Noni Hazlehurst

Nominated for two Helpmann Awards in 2016: Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Play and Best Regional Touring Production.
