Description

A young woman calls a helpline. Someone answers. She isn't a helpline. A misdial that leads to an accidental friendship. Despite pressures from a right-wing sister and earworms from a cruel best friend, empowering community and rebellious art persist. About finding the courage to heal from the past and become who you are, this is a play celebrating the power of human connection and the endurance of the human spirit. For everyone who has ever felt alone in this world. For those who refuse to leave them there.

A wonderful, original play charting what it can feel like to hopelessly isolated. The writing, the cast and stage direction came together seamlessly and had you bought into the world from start to finish. In the best way, some moments almost felt a little too real.

I appreciated the subtlety with which it dealt with its themes, never shoving it in your face but letting you interpret them as you see fit. I think most people will be able to relate to one of the many facets of mental health the play delicately explores - I certainly found it inspired both a level of introspection, yet also comfort that stuck with me many hours after I left.

just saw hello? hello. this is a well paced, written and directed piece. it constantly reveals more as it unwinds in front of you. the acting is fantastic. the emotion you as an audience go through is real you feel the lonelyness of the characters. this is portrayed by a strong script and executed by a unbelievably talented cast. the direction has been brilliant as the acting is so natural you feel like a fly on the wall watching a real situation. please go see this excellent and daring piece of theatre before it finishes.

Thoroughly enjoyed this thought provoking play by upcoming theatre company Rove st productions. The play introduces us to two women who are thrown together by a chance misdialled phone call to a helpline, who then go on to form an unexpected friendship. The subsequent phone calls take us through the ups and downs of their everyday lives. The play confidently deals with the subjects of mental illness and loss and is played by a very talented bunch of performers who maturely deal with the subject matter. This is a definite must see.

I went to the preview of the play the 3rd of August. The script is cleverly written, the perception of time within the play is interesting and the subject is one to be noted (mental health). The play was delivered by talented actors who have brought a lot to the table for this production. The relationships are playful and fun between the characters and the energy the actors bring to the stage is very visible. Highly recommend it!

I'm so pleased I went to see this gem of a play. Beautifully acted in an understated but powerful way that it gives you a sense of what it might be like to feel alone or cajoled into living a certain way to meet other people's expectations. It shows that by finding someone to talk to, in this case a stranger, one can start to work through their issues. A must see!

Brilliant writing and performance from an exciting, young female lead cast. Filled with talent and professionalism as well as potential. The play tackles difficult topics of mental health and political differences, giving the audience a chance to look at both the world and our on mental health in a new light and perspective.

As a concept, this drama about a misdialled number had much potential, and the themes of friendship and empathy came across well.

...this play is inspired by a lovely sentiment, containing a strong message for all those who struggle with anxiety and who feel isolated. It’s a timely reminder that hope hides in the most unpredictable places and that, if the door is left ajar, someone might pop in to help.
