Kate and Rupert live in a world where divorce is compulsory at 13 years. As life expectancy has grown from 35 to 85, those extra 50 years make lifelong marriage unendurable. In this world, everyone must divorce after 13 years.
But Kate and Rupert are still in love.
In this buoyant, occasionally saucy musical, the protagonists fight the system to stay together. Twenty songs explore not only the nature of love in its middle stages but confront middle-aged issues such as the existential significance of kids (or otherwise), post-menopausal sex, masturbation, and male midlife crisis.
This show is part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival
