Prop Theatre, 3502 N. Elston Ave.
It's 1965 in the white slums of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Hello and Goodbye is the story of Johnny and Hester Smit, a brother and sister. Johnny has been looking after his father, a former railway worker who was disabled in an explosion. Hester, Johnny's older sister, returns after a 15-year estrangement. As one of Fugard's early works, Hello and Goodbye is largely apolitical, more focusing on family dynamics and the feelings of what one is "owed."
