The Life Of Us follows the long distance romance of Charlie and Ellie. Forced apart by circumstance, they maintain their relationship through technology, but how much connection can a person truly feel through a screen? As we watch their lives unfold and their relationships crumble, we begin to understand what we want isn’t always what we need.

The Life Of Us is a modern-day musical that looks at how we love and what it means to be connected.

Mentored by the legendary Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell) The Life Of Us is Australia’s new, groundbreaking musical, with an extraordinary ability to express universal feelings of love and heartbreak into a deeply affecting and intimate musical.

With a knockout, emotionally powerful score that will hook you from the first note, this original production features the incredible talents of Ashleigh Taylor (American Idiot The Musical) and Ben Bennett (Muriels Wedding The Musical) Christian Charisiou (The Last Five Years, Cry Baby) and Pippa Grandison (Elphaba – Wicked). The Life of Us is raw, heart-wrenching, honest and appeals to anyone who is, has been, or hopes to be, in love. Don’t miss it.
