Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall – Performance & dance
Family, friends and lovers are all part of Julia Hales’ deeply personal account of her experiences as a daughter, actor, dreamer and person with Down syndrome.
Actor, presenter and writer Julia Hales brings her celebrated portrayal of living with Down syndrome to London for the first time, having been nominated for Australian of the Year Award, winning two Performing Arts WA awards and running sell-out shows in Australia. Part-play, part-live documentary, Julia brings with her the voices of a community rarely seen on stage as an uplifting and joyous performance.

Julia Hales has watched every single episode of Australian soap opera Home and Away since it first aired in 1988, but she’s never seen another person with Down syndrome in the cast. She dreams of landing a role in her favourite show and finding love. You Know We Belong Together is about love, loss, friendships and dreams, told through the eyes of a woman who happens to have Down syndrome.

Previous praise for You Know We Belong Together:
