About The Sum of Us at Above The Stag
Above The Stag Theatre opens its autumn season with Australian comedy-drama The Sum of Us, playing from 9 September, running until Sunday 4 October. Progressive for its time, The Sum of Us was a hit Off-Broadway and later adapted as a film in 1994 starring Russell Crowe. The play is directed by Gene David Kirk, former Artistic Director of Jermyn Street Theatre, fresh from a successful run of Closer To Heaven by Jonathan Harvey and Pet Shop Boys at the Union Theatre.
After meeting in a local pub, Jeff and a young gardener, Greg hit it off and begin to date. When he meets Jeff’s Dad however, Greg begins to back off – but why? Meanwhile Dad too has a new flame – Joyce – he met through a dating service. Put off by Jeff’s homosexuality, narrow-minded Joyce too pulls away just before a surprising and poignant ending.
