This February, Yirra Yaakin, in association with Perth Festival, is presenting an exciting revisioning of the much-loved story from the off-Broadway hit and award-winning film The Sum of Us with an all First Nations cast. Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season.
The Sum of Us is a beautiful tale of a strong family bond, ageing, queerness and the dance we all do when searching for love.
Written by playwright David Stevens and directed by Eva Grace Mullaley, The Sum of Us is Yirra Yaakin's first queer work.
How's a guy supposed to find Mr Right when his father is always up in his business? That's the premise of this warm comedy that revolves around the comfortable relationship between widower Harry and his son Jeff.
It is a story that no culture is exempt from. The Sum of Us remains as relevant today as it was 30 years ago. Don't miss this strictly limited season running from 18th to 28th February at Subiaco Arts Centre, Main Auditorium.
Performances will be held Wednesday - Friday 7.30pm, Saturday 28 February 7.30pm, Saturday 6 March 2pm & 7.30pm, Sunday 6pm.
A Post Show Q&A and AUSLAN Interpreted Performance will take place on Wednesday 3 March, and an Audio Described Performance will take place on Thursday 4 March.
