The lesbian divorce comedy you didn’t know you needed.

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 inquiring kids and a manageable mortgage in the inner west. With love and hard work, they made the political personal and built a family of which they’re fiercely proud. They re-wrote the rules, and 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.

A fine new play from the wicked mind of Maeve Marsden, Blessed Union is for anyone who’s looked at their life and wondered if there might be a better way to live it.

Plays about family are as old as theatre but this is a play about a new kind of family, and it’s brilliant. It came out of our Writers Lab and lockdown developments so we’re elated it’s hitting the stage. And with Danielle Cormack and Maude Davey as Ruth and Judith, it’ll be a treat. -Eamon Flack (Belvoir Artistic Director)
