Samuel Johnson OAM is a much-loved Australian actor, best known for his work on The Secret Lives of Us, Crackerjack, Underbelly II, Rush and as the star of the hit biopic Molly, for which he won a Gold Logie. In 2018 he was named the 2018 Victorian of the Year for his charity work to raise funds for treatment and awareness of cancer. Samuel set up Love Your Sister with his sister Connie, before her death. Samuel and Connie’s book of that title was a bestseller, and his new book, written with his sister Hilde Hinton, continues the story and the campaign to raise $10million for cancer research. Hilde Hinton has been a dedicated big sister to Connie and Samuel Johnson her whole life. She is currently a Prison Officer who has avoided being a writer for many years but has finally succumbed. The Loudness of Unsaid Things is her debut novel. She lives in a boisterous house in Melbourne with a revolving door for the temporarily defeated and takes great pride in people leaving slightly better than when they arrived. Her children are mostly loved. Entry Cost All tickets $16 - Tickets: $20 / $16 concession
