Hannah Gadsby’s tenth solo show was Nanette. It did alright.
Nanette played around Australia and the UK for eighteen months, taking out the top prizes at the Melbourne and Edinburgh festivals before sitting down in New York in Spring 2018 and dropping a Netflix special that summer that won her a Peabody Award and started a global conversation that continues today.
While Nanette was a random barista, Douglas is a very specific dog, and the only thing they have in common is they’ve inspired Hannah to put pen to paper and turn out a show you couldn’t possibly expect. Hannah found her voice with Nanette and with Douglas she plans to use it. The stand-up stage has been Hannah’s home for more than a decade, and the last couple of years have given her a few very new ideas to think and talk about in her brand new show.

We recommend leaving all large bags at home, any bags larger than an A4 piece of paper is required to be checked into the Cloak Room.
If you are late, we will seat you as soon as possible, but please be aware that some events have lock out periods. In these cases, latecomers will be admitted at a suitable break in the performance. On occasions this may not be until the interval, or at all where there is no interval. Details of our right to refuse admission can be found in our General Terms and Conditions for Tickets and Events.
You can catch public transport (bus, train, ferry) to Circular Quay and enjoy a 6 min walk to the Opera House. If you’re getting dropped off in a car head to the roundabout at the bottom Macquarie Street where staff will direct you to a safe place to pull over.

Yondr is a system used to store your digital device as you enter the auditorium. Your phone is placed on vibrate or silent, and sealed in a pouch that you keep with you at all times. You can access your device by leaving the performance and having your Yondr pouch released in the foyer.
Patrons can set their phone to vibrate prior to locking their phone in a Yondr pouch. They will be able to feel the phone vibrate through the Yondr pouch and may use their phone throughout the night at designated phone use areas in the foyers of the venue.
Should an emergency occur, all patrons are asked to follow the instructions of Opera House staff, who are trained to implement safety and emergency procedures when and if required. Once outside, Yondr staff will have hand-held unlocking devices to release your belongings.
