Harbour Theatre is delighted to present the Australian Premiere of WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS by Jill Hyem. The original writer of the hugely successful television series’ Howards Way, The House of Elliot and co-writer of Tenko returns to her theatre roots with this magical story set in the world’s most romantic city.
Three English women “of a certain age” gravitate to Paris in search of….je ne sais pas…… but perhaps, just perhaps they will find what they are looking for? There’s Nancy, a retired headmistress is determined to have a complete change of direction in her life, Anna, recently widowed…and free after years of nursing a sick husband shows there is more to her than meets the eye and then there is Rachel, a divorcee in search of eternal youth and a new toy boy!
The sole male is Charlot, an actor-turned-handyman at the beck and call of Madame Boussiron the overbearing landlady who couldn’t be anything but French.
Directed by the award winning Nicola Bond this is a feel good play with laughter and tears, the promise of romance, love, friendship, loyalty and the advantages of growing old. A play to leave you charmed, amused, thoughtful and most of all smiling!”
Featuring Jo Sterkenburg as Nancy, Kate Moulder as Anna, Grace Hitchin as Raquel, Ann Speicher as Madame Boussiron & Rob Tagliaferri as Chalot.

A play rehearsal is interrupted by the arrival of a divided family who have been abandoned by their creator and are seeking an author, ‘any author’, to give them a ‘definitive artistic form’ so their stories may be staged. While the first performance of Luigi Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author to a Rome audience in May 1921 was almost booed off the stage it has gone on to have many successful seasons and is still a major part of the theatrical repertoire. The play, in part, is Pirandello’s attack on the Italian theatre of the time, with its actor-managers and star-systems, its stock characterisations, and its standard repertoire of romantic melodramas. However, it is a play on many levels. It raises questions about the nature of reality, of what constitutes identity, and how we can gauge what is truth. On another level it is a hysterical romantic melodrama about a warring family who live out their emotions on the skin. And, it is also a deeply tragic revenge narrative – a tale of betrayal, adultery, suicide and death. Students enrolled in theatre studies at UWA present this very physical, at times comedic, and often provocatively philosophical play, virtually uncut and unlike many productions we choose not to attempt to modernise it into the contemporary world of electronic media.
