See 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.
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. A beautiful tale of a strong family bond, ageing, queerness and the dance we all do when searching for love, this is Yirra Yaakin’s first queer work. Performed by an Australian First Nations cast, it is a story that no culture is exempt from. Balancing humour and pathos, The Sum of Us remains as relevant today as it was 30 years ago.
