By Roslyn Oades & Collaborators

Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday celebrates two epic birthdays – eighteen and eighty – major transition points in adult life.

One represents untold potential and opportunity; the other a lifetime of experiences, aspirations, fears and memories. Scripted from intimate real-life conversations with people either side of these milestones, Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday is a beautifully warm and human show from Roslyn Oades & Collaborators.

One of the most charming shows of the year” ABC Arts
