It is 1942. The world is at war. But Elaine is in New York for the first time. She’s in love with the skyline, the fashion, the musicals, and Tom.

The conflict seems so far away – until she meets Simone, a French Jewish refugee with a terrible secret.

First produced Life is Impossible in 2010 at the Newtown Theatre and it received terrific responses:

“a profound piece of theatre that explores the human psyche whilst simultaneously questioning it… Life is Impossible deserves a tip of the hat to subtlenuance’s efforts, talent and integrity. It’s an enjoyable show, with thought-provoking one-liners spotted with songs, a touch of dance and all-round bittersweet intrigue. Make sure you see this entertaining production” [small] LUSTS

“Life Is Impossible is a credit to the ability of Paul Gilchrist” - Aussie Theatre

Don’t miss the new production of this indie classic a decade later as part of the Old 505 Theatre’s season of FreshWorks.
