Hello and Goodbye

Presented at Jewel Theatre Company


‘Hello and Goodbye’ at Jewel Theatre
"Johnny’s face and shiny head are drenched with sweat as the frantic middle-aged character pleas with his older sister to stay out of their father’s bedroom. There, Johnny fears she might uncover one of the family’s last remaining secrets—that their father isn’t even there.

In a play marked by crescendos of mounting tension, Johnny, a socially awkward, stocky man played by Shakespeare Santa Cruz regular Mike Ryan, is seeing his sister for the first time in 15 years. He’s slow to let his guard down."
