When: SAT 12/9 AT 7 PM
At Holden Street Theatre, 34 Holden St, Hindmarsh
In the search for a string of pearls, a daughter travels to her abandoned childhood home and a mother travels from Port Pirie to Paris without ever leaving Australia. Family relics abound: ashtrays, a Princess Diana jigsaw, a commode as a table. Memories are ignited, questioned, and still the pearls cannot be found. Family fractures deepen until finally a heartbreaking, but healing truth is revealed. A story that will make you laugh, then cry, then laugh again.
Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Australian Refugee Association's “Art at ARA” school holiday program for young people.
At the heart of Pearls is my mum’s commitment to helping children and young people make art. Whether it’s to help us make us sense of ourselves and our world; to share our ideas; or simply to make something beautiful … art matters.
General Admission: $20, Concession: $16. Dinner first at the Joyner’s Arms, Manton St, Hindmarsh at 5.30 pm.
