Journey of A Thousand Smiles
From Jessica Hackett:
“With help from 5pound Theatre I have created a show called Journey of a Thousand Smiles. I performed the show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and it received excellent reviews. The show is on again at The Butterfly Club in Melbourne and we are planning to tour it up the Hume Hwy and around the country. Here are some of the reviews”:
“A small story about a very big issue. Sweet…silly…complete with crying into wine” – Broadway World
“Jess’s personality shines through as a beacon of positivity.” – Aussie Theatre
This is the true story of Jessica Hackett’s 710 kilometres walk from Melbourne to Canberra in the Summer of 2016.
The story of 17,000 signatures and the high school teacher that carried them.
If you didn’t think Australians were welcoming, think again.
Novice walker Jess tells the stories of refugees, Australian farmers and city folk, and showcases the positivity of words, action, thought and spirit.
