Mother 2020: Wednesday March 4
Head to the theatre to catch one of Australia’s favourite and most respected actors and presenters Noni Hazlehurst as she returns to QPAC in the critically acclaimed production of Mother. Mother tells the story of Christie, a homeless woman in a world detached, unforgiving and destructive. It gives voice to the fallen and dispossessed, to those who exist at the edge of safety, at the point of being undone. Some food for thought this International Women’s Day.
Tickets from $69, available here.
