Set in the home of a poor white family in 1960s Apartheid South Africa, “Hello and Goodbye” conjures the repercussions of evaporating identity. When all that you have been taught defines you is an authoritative regime and a guilt-driven religious tradition, where do you find your own narrative, your own story? In a literary dance that steps between Beckett-like absurdity and the realism of Sam Shepard or Tennessee Williams, Fugard does a deep dive into a family torn apart by a toxic mix of self-loathing, lethal patriarchy, and the violence of the country in which it is set.
