Last Year's Eve

Monday, 11 March 2019 to Saturday, 16 March 2019
Adelaide Fringe

“..I’ll never forget the look on my friend’s face in that moment.. he looked at me now like I was a stranger..”

Hugo has always been an outsider looking in.  He stands waiting in an empty room.
Last Year’s Eve tells a powerful story about belonging, home and how we find our place in the world. This moving performance confronts the audience not with a grand political statement; but with an ordinary person, who throughout his life has had to face an extraordinary struggle.
Inspired by real events, Last Year’s Eve explore themes of identity, friendship, family and isolation through the lens of a character who, after having left his country of origin as a child, finds himself once again faced with the prospect of leaving his home behind, with everything he has built along the way.

"..A heart-rending story of displacement" Melbourne Observer
"..Exceptionally constructed and portrayed.." "★★★★½" Artshub
"Last Year's Eve is a very moving and beautiful contemplation on the meaning of
home." Liz Jones, Artistic Director and CEO, La Mama Theatre
