Last Year's Eve - Event image

About this event

Hugo was 8 years old when he came to the country as an refugee.

He has spent the last 15 years of his life living and working in this place that he has slowly grown to call home.
Tomorrow, Hugo will leave the country and never return.

Last Year's Eve is an original work by Zac Kazepis, which explores the themes of identity,
friendship, family and isolation. This is a show about the past, the present, and an
unknown future.

This is a story about home.

"..A heart-rending story of displacement" Melbourne Observer

"..Exceptionally constructed and portrayed.." "★★★★½" Artshub

"Last Year's Eve is a very moving and beautiful contemplation on the meaning of
home." Liz Jones, Artistic Director and CEO, La Mama Theatre
