It’s Complicated

June 21 - June 23

By Sally Mitcham
Directed by Simon Copper

I don’t normally off-load on strangers. It’s just been a really bad morning.”

In a children’s soft play that has seen better days, two strangers strike up conversation. Cora and John have a lot in common – young kids, relationships that have ended messily, a love of The Shawshank Redemption. In between interruptions from children, a grumpy waitress and hoity-toity mothers, the pair hit it off. But is John all that he claims to be?

It’s Complicated is a funny, heartwarming story about life’s beautiful messiness.
