SIGNIFICANT OTHER BY JOSHUA HARMON
Tuesday, 1 June to Saturday, 26 June, 2021
The New Theatre, 524 King Street, Newtown

Jordan Berman is young, single, Jewish, and gay. He lives in New York City, has a good job, a great apartment and a fabulous trio of best girlfriends. Only one thing is missing from his life. Jordan develops a crush on cute co-worker Will, obsessing over every little detail, slow to the realisation that his feelings aren’t reciprocated. All his dates are dead ends. As one by one his posse of gal pals find love, and life becomes a whirl of wedding showers, bachelorette parties and marriage ceremonies, Jordan starts to fear he’s running out of time. Full of laughs and wise-cracking, whip-smart repartee, Joshua Harmon’s play is also a clear-eyed, unsentimental look at what happens to friendships when people start to pair off, and the profound loneliness of being single when all you desire is a soulmate.

This is the Australian premiere of Significant Other.
