The Sum of Us is a bitter sweet comedy that revolves around the devoted and loving relationship between widower, Harry, and his homosexual son, Jeff, and their individual searches for a partner. Jeff is interested in Greg, a young public works gardener he met at a local pub and Harry begins dating Joyce, a woman he met through a dating service. Harry’s unconditional love and acceptance of his son’s sexuality is a bit too daunting for Greg, whose homophobic father keeps Greg in the closet and wary of the comfortable relationship Harry and Jeff share.The play illuminates the eternal human need to transcend our separateness, to embark upon the difficult but necessary road to an accepting and loving connection with others.
