Rosie and Gen’s parents are divorced, making their trips back to their hometown a complicated journey of passive aggression and massive regression. There’s something about going back to your hometown that makes you feel so big yet so small at the same time.

When their Paul Kelly-obsessed dad falls ill, they alternate taking leave from their jobs to care for him. Introducing: the Cancer Calendar. Why use emotion when you have Excel Spreadsheet?

Rosie and Gen try to hold onto their current lives, relationships and jobs in the face of loss and the dawning realisation that they don’t know as much about their parents as they thought.

Growing up once is hard, but growing up again as an adult is harder.

The Plan (and Other Plans) is a hilarious, messy and big-hearted comedy, laced with quintessential Aussie humour, featuring a nostalgic soundtrack of Paul Kelly hits.

We acknowledge that we live and create on unceded lands. We pay our respects to the First Peoples of Australia, and to their elders past, present and future.
