Hello, Beautiful: A funny and personal evening with Hannie Rayson

The award-winning playwright and Australian author, Hannie Rayson, will perform stories and insights from her best-selling memoir of the same name, Hello, Beautiful! in her personal and hilarious one-woman show performing on Thursday 6 April at 7.30pm at the Benalla Performing Arts and Convention Centre (BPACC).

“In this 60-minute show, Hannie gives an intimate look at her life and hilarious experiences,” said Jilian Mulally, Manager Arts, Communications, Tourism and Events.

“From the early days of Theatreworks (co-founded by Hannie), to Hotel Sorrento on every school syllabus, to forays in Hollywood and her attempts to rap to Fleetwood Mac, this is an evening of theatre complete with humour, soul, and biting observation.”

“Hannie shines the spotlight on herself and shares stories with warmth, wit and humour.”

Hannie Rayson is the author of fourteen plays. Her plays have been performed throughout Australia and overseas. The plays include: Mary, Room to Move, Hotel Sorrento, Falling from Grace, Scenes from a Separation (co-written with Andrew Bovell), Competitive Tenderness, Life After George, Inheritance Two Brothers, The Glass Soldier, and The Swimming Club.

Hannie has been awarded two Australian Writers’ Guild Awards, four Helpmann Awards, two NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, The Age Performing Arts Award and The Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award.
