"You will love this incredible show."

New York Musical Theatre Festival.

“Go see it. Then just try and wipe the smile off your face. It is nothing short of brilliant."

Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life is a hilarious and heartwarming musical that tells the truth about marriage, motherhood and the juggle to ‘do it all.’

What if women told the truth a little more, to ourselves and each other? What if we admitted marriage can be tough, motherhood is a challenge and doing it all is exhausting. What if, instead of the Hollywood version of marriage and motherhood, we saw a depiction of how it really is - relentless, exhilarating, infuriating, hilarious, complicated.

Written by and starring Amity Dry, well known from Channel Nine’s hit TV show The Block as well as her top 10 Gold album The Lighthouse, this musical is truly a home grown success story.

After successful seasons and rave reviews in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney the show was selected for the 2013 New York Musical Theatre Festival, from hundreds of worldwide submissions. It then returned to New York in 2014 to play at the United Nations, as part of the Commission for the Status of Women Conference and 54 Below, New York’s hottest cabaret club. In January 2015 the show had its European debut, with a four week season at the Kilden Theatre in Norway, where it's enjoyed packed houses and nightly standing ovations. Now it returns to Adelaide as part of a national tour, for it’s fourth return season!

The ultimate ‘Girls Night Out’ this funny, poignant & endearing show will make you laugh, cry and leave feeling like your complicated life is completely normal!

 "This show is about being human, not "just" about being a woman. The play raises the everyday and puts words and pictures on the fears and dreams that many of us know. This is our life.” Norwegian blog review

 “Amity Dry has tapped into some home truths about the everyday lives of wives and mothers, and presented the humour, frustrations, regrets and sadness.” Stage Whispers

 “A chick’s night out, a celebration of female friendships and a laughing examination of girl power. At a time when new musicals all seem to be imported re-hashes of movies, this is a home-grown gem.”  Adelaide Theatre Guide

 “Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life tells the story of motherhood in the true spirit of the sisterhood; honest, raw, chaotic, realistic and bloody funny. It's the ultimate girls night out!” Lucy Cornes,
