Planes fly over their Marrickville apartment as Sam and Jess argue, for the hundredth time, about whose turn it is to take the bins out. While they still love one another, it’s clear they are in a rut. After nine years, it’s not surprising.
After a night out with a captivating performer, Jess finds herself falling head over heels. Lola is queer, funny and utterly unapologetic. She’s also polyamorous.
So Jess and Sam decide to try it.
But polyamory isn’t all fun, games, and threesomes. Being “ethical sluts” isn’t easy, particularly when one of you finds love, and the other sits around watching Netflix.
Featuring all original music, cabaret, chaos, and a whole love of love, this subversive new musical by award-winning playwright Lucy Matthews, upends the notion that “happily ever after” is exclusively for two people.
