Movie Poster

Originally a Broadway hit and then made into a blockbuster movie in 1994, starring a young Russell Crowe and Jack Thompson. This heart-warming and humorous play explores the relationship between Harry, an accepting and loving father and his openly gay son, Jeff. An amateur footy player who's a plumber by trade. The play begins Jeff reflecting on growing up and the impact his grandmother had on his life.

The Sum of Us duration runs for approximately 2 hours with an intermission, a chance to stretch your legs and grab a drink and a mingle.

Jeff meets Greg, a handsome young gardener in a pub and they hit it off quite well. Whilst the father Mets an attractive new woman, Joyce through a phone dating service. There are twists and turns, for both men and as love starts to unravels itself, one thing to remember is don't put things off and say one day.
