"The Sum of Us" is a heartfelt story balancing the humor & pathos of a unique father and son relationship that is not only unconditional... but unconventional.
The Sum of Us, an acclaimed 1990 play, was also adapted into an award-winning film starring Russell Crowe and Jack Thompson in 1994. David Stevens wrote both versions about a strong family bond that stumbles graciously to the rhythm we all fall into when we dream of adventure and wish for love.
This contemporary adaptation brings the story of Harry, Jeff, Joyce, and Greg into modern-day America. Partly inspired by the recent Netflix hit series "Grace & Frankie" - The Sum Of Us involves current issues of social media, technological distancing, and ageism to underscore a timeless and moving story.
