Blessed Union


A play for anyone who’s looked at their life and wondered if there might be a better way to live it… Ruth and Judith have been together for a long time. Long enough to have seen Australia change, for better and for worse. They have two bright and enquiring kids and a manageable mortgage.

With love and hard work, they made the political personal and built a family of which they’re fiercely proud. Their life together is a progressive success story. Why should breaking up be any different? But even the loftiest ideals can come undone when pesky human emotion gets involved.
