Saturday Sessions – Angela Norris “After You”

Arts, Society & Culture

What an absolute delight to have Angela Norris in studio today with Pete and Dylan to chat about her show “After You”. There is a modesty and warmth about Angela that would make her a compelling person to see perform on stage.

In 1961, Angela was in the Australian premiere production of The Sound of Music. The expectations of her generation, including motherhood, stopped her following that career.  Angela has now retired and her daughter Hannah saw this as the perfect opportunity to create a show with her mum.

Hannah has been working professionally as an actor for 15 years across the independent and main stages of Australia. Nominee and winner of multiple Australian theatre awards, notable performances include CUT (Edinburgh & Adelaide), My Name is Rachel Corrie (Melbourne & Adelaide), Buried Child (State Theatre Company of SA), Palace of the End (Theatre Works), Let the Sunshine (Australian national tour) Osama the Hero (The Rabble) and The Turn of the Screw (State Opera SA).

By looking into Angela’s past, Hannah is weighing up her own life, choices and what the future holds for them both. Hopeful, optimistic and full of love, After You will leave you believing forgotten and hidden dreams can come true.

After You premiered at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe with outstanding reviews.

Take the tissues and immerse yourself in a show that is a gift for its audience.

“After You” is on at The Butterfly Club from 13th to 18th May at 8.30pm each night.

Tickets are available though
