“The Sum of Us”

by

David Stephens

Directed by Daniel Turner

Synopsis:

“The Sum of Us” by David Stephens is a unique look into the life of a father and son in the suburb of Footscray in Melbourne, a hit off-Broadway, it was adapted into a film starring Russell Crowe and Jack Thompson.

This play by gifted Australian writer Dan Stephens explores the volatile relationship between an ageing widower and his gay son. After meeting in a local pub, Jeff and a young gardener, Greg, hit it off and begin dating. When Greg meets Jeff’s stubborn, opinionated dad, however, Greg begins to back off. Meanwhile, Dad has a new flame too: Joyce, a woman he met through a dating service. Put off by Jeff’s homosexuality, prosaic Joyce pulls away just before a terrible accident.

David Stephens writes a story that speaks to all generations, with a message that must be told. Although it was written in 1990 this play is as relevant now as it was then with a message of acceptance and normality which bears repeating.

*Nibbles and drinks provided pre-show in the lobby
