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 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.
Written by Maeve Marsden and directed by Hannah Goodwin, Blessed Union will premiere at Belvoir St Theatre in February 2023, starring Danielle Cormack, Maude Davey, Emma Diaz and Jasper Lee Lindsay.
