After dazzling punters last year with their stellar debut production Shelter, The Drawer Productions (TDP) returns to the Anywhere Festival with their equally impressive sophomore effort, Hello, Stranger.
Created in partnership with Alzheimer’s Queensland, Hello, Stranger tells three interconnected stories of the impacts of dementia on both the old and young, as well as those who care for them. We are first introduced to ‘Zombie’ and ‘Nurse’, played by Molly Walker and Teah Peters, young friends at a high-school party who don’t want the night to end. After being kicked out of the party, we meet Kip and Dot Potts, played by Patrick Galen-Mules and Ada Lukin, replacing Tegan Braithwaite for the evening, an older couple who are trying to achieve everything one Dot’s bucket list while she still can. Finally there’s Big and Small, played by Matias Nuñez and Indiah Morris, a young couple trying to make sense of Small’s rapidly deteriorating condition.
